by Tod Bradbury

Elusive individual bottlings from The Casks of Distinction series are available for the first time. 


There’s a golden star catching the eye of rare whisky devotees. An emblem very rarely seen but one that holds great prestige. This is the golden star of Cask of Distinction: from a discrete programme of ultra-luxurious Scotch casks, only a handful ordained each year, shared directly from the distilleries to the collectors around the world.

Whisky:  The 39 Year Old Port Ellen

Whisky: The 39 Year Old Port Ellen

Wednesday 13th March 2019
by Tod Bradbury

This April, Port Ellen will unveil the oldest liquid to be release from their stock and made available to the public. Port Ellen: Untold Stories The Spirit Safe. 

A 39-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky and the first exclusive release in a series of high aged whiskies from this revered distillery. The Port Ellen Untold Stories Series is an exploration into the innovative and trailblazing background of this iconic Islay distillery. Closed over thirty years ago in 1983, set to remain silent for all time, it is now to be reopened in 2021. While the world waits for it to start production again, only a finite amount of its original stock remains, having gained cult status with collectors and connoisseurs alike.

The 39-Year-old will represent one of the last chances to own a piece of Port Ellen history, before the distillery begins creating new legendary whiskies. The ultimate expression of Islay, the copper stills that made this unique tasting malt may be long gone, but the people of the Port Ellen distillery carefully kept these memories alive.  Distilled in 1978, this elegant and complex Single Malt Scotch Whisky, expertly married from a selection of ex US-Bourbon and ex European Sherry refill casks, is one of extraordinary character.
