“Marking the return of this iconic distillery, and a new light in its future, Port Ellen Gemini is true taste of a legend reborn...”

Dr. Craig Wilson

Master Blender

Two bottles. Two journeys.

The 44-Year-Old whisky was drawn from three exceptional 1978 European Oak casks, specifically selected long ago for this new experiment. The whisky was then split into two casks which took diverging paths of maturation.

Port Ellen Gemini Original
Honouring the characterful Islay smoke
This untouched whisky from 1978 has smooth, sweet, salty, and smoky characteristics allowing an appreciation of Port Ellen distillery’s time-honoured craft and the characterful Islay smoke.

Port Ellen Gemini Remnant
A finish that sets new life in motion
The second of these twin whiskies embarked on a new maturation journey within the Port Ellen remnant cask. The Port Ellen remnant cask is likely to have touched some of the distillery’s most historic whiskies. This finishing technique imbues the whisky with a golden garment of sea salt, smoke, dried fruit and oak.
