Littlemill 40 Year Old
70cl / 46.8%
- Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
An exquisitely-packaged edition of Littlemill – the oldest, in fact, ever released from this lost distillery. This 40-year-old Celestial Edition has been bottled in celebration of the distillery owner Duncan Thomas, whose life's work was the creation of Littlemill's subtly floral, vanilla-led whisky.
The elegant presentation box that houses the hand-faceted Glencairn crystal decanter, alongside a miniature of the whisky and a commemorative booklet, depicts the configuration of the stars on the evening that the whisky was distilled.

Tasting notes from the producer
Floral bursts of honey and elderflower, early summer hedgerow, with delicate honey sweetness and elegant oak spice of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Opens with mouth-watering fruits, crisp green apple and fresh pineapple with grapefruit and lime citrus then richer dried fruits of sultana and raisins before vanilla toffee gives sweetness to the mid-palate.
Long with layers of fruit and spice. Green fruits continue into the finish with gooseberry and kiwi before waves of warming cinnamon and clove spice.
