The oldest ever bottling direct from the Mortlach distillery

The Registration is now closed.

The very first release from The Singing Stills series celebrates a bold new collection of incredibly rare single cask expressions drawn from the final three casks filled in 1971. Distilled and matured at the distillery in Dufftown, these specially selected casks have remained unmoved from their original warehouse ever since.

Mortlach 47 Year Old 46.8%
Cask #2892 Distilled 1971

A velvety body with notes of honey, hot toasted wood and dark chocolate with a buttery smoothness, a prelude to a delicate, lightly perfumed finish. The first edition of the Singing Stills series, bottled at 47 Years Old, is the oldest ever bottling direct from the Mortlach Distillery. It is truly a bold and rare expression, with layer upon layer of subtle and intriguing complexity.

‘Singing Stills’ reference the mysterious notes that come from the stills during distillation whilst celebrating the curiously robust character of Mortlach. For a long time a closely guarded secret of whisky cognoscenti, today Mortlach is revered as “The Beast of Dufftown” for the rich and complex character endowed by its uniquely complex distillation process. This is a rare chance to experience one of the world’s most singular malts from the first of just three casks distilled in 1971.

About Mortlach

Mortlach distillery was founded in 1823. Dr. Alexander Cowie oversaw the very first spirit distillation, through a completely unique and fiendishly complex process, which he used his scientific acumen to craft. He was not a distiller by trade and had not long returned from a posting in the exotic climes of Hong Kong, where he spent five years practicing medicine. After the untimely death of his older brother, he returned to run Dufftown’s oldest distillery with his father George, who learned the craft of distilling after a career carving the great Scottish railways into the rugged landscape as an engineer, before becoming the owner of the Mortlach distillery. George bestowed it all to Alexander when he died, and Alexander doubled the stills his father left him.
