A 1948 vintage Strathisla from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail, who are specialists in older whiskies. The distillery was actually called Milton when this was distilled, the name Strathisla not being adopted until 1951. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s.
A special embossed teardrop decanter of aged Strathmill, bottled for the distillery's centenary in the early 1990s. Very rare to see an official bottling of Strathmill, this is a real collector's item.

A bottling of Springbank from the rare and highly sought after 'Local Barley' series. Distilled in February 1966, it was then matured in ex-bourbon cask number 484 for 31 years, before being bottled in August 1997.
One of the rarest single malts to have existed, Kinclaith distillery was housed within the Strathclyde Grain Whisky complex from 1957 to 1975. This 1969 vintage was aged for 40 years before being released by independent bottlers Signatory.
