Port Ellen

In 1983 the stills at Port Ellen fell silent and the distillery closed its doors. In fact, this was the second time it had closed, after a mere sixteen years in production following a long dormant period. With very few mature casks to speak of, and none from its first incarnation, Port Ellen’s owners had inadvertently decided to stop producing one of the most ethereal and heavenly Islay malts ever made. No-one had any idea how well those rare few casks would turn out – what magic would emerge in the decades to follow.

Over the years these maturing casks have become some of the most revered and highly sought after in the Scotch whisky industry. Since then, Port Ellen has not produced a single drop of whisky – though the product of those fertile years, specifically between 1970 and 1983, has slowly started appearing in official releases, sating the market’s thirst for this incomparable whisky. Today collectors see Port Ellen as one of a handful of truly collectable distilleries. Moreover, the news that Port Ellen has been bestowed with a new lease of life and will be re-opened has encouraged a new wave of collectors to buy up the especially rare stocks of the old, original releases before the new spirit hits the market twenty to thirty years from now. These special releases, heirlooms of a bygone era, are true one-offs and will forever stand as milestones in the history of Scotch whisky.
