9 Rogue Casks 40 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
The Port Ellen Distillery was founded in 1825 and was always a very profitable distillery. This was until the events in 1929 on Wall Street where there was a Crash. This meant that the distillery was to end production and was converted into a maltings and also storage of barrels for maturation. The maltings now owned by Diageo supplies many of the other distilleries on the island. The stocks from this now closed distillery are dwindling and they are now incredibly rare and extremely hard to find. One of the rarest and oldest casks ever to be released and made publicly available direct from the distillery. With only 1,130 bottles available across the world this is one of the last chances to own a part of Port Ellen’s history. This is the second release in the highly collectable Port Ellen Untold Stories Series that explores the story of Port Ellen’s past ahead of the distillery’s return. Each precious drop of this exclusive 40-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is from 9 rogue casks. Dr Craig Wilson (Master Blender) has carefully selected nine special casks from the original stock, four American oak ex bourbon hogsheads and five ex Sherry European oak butts, to create a Port Ellen unlike anything seen from the distillery before. The casks celebrate the distilleries soft peat smoke, rich sweet aromas, aromatic spice and wonderful tropical fruits. This is Port Ellens history and an opportunity to experience the next chapter of Port Ellen’s Untold Story.

About the brand
The Port Ellen distillery is located in Port Ellen on the isle of Islay, Scotland. Port Ellen was established as a malt mill in 1825, and then developed as a distillery under John Ramsay from 1833 to 1892. The warehouses he built still exist and are listed buildings. The distillery was acquired by the Distillers Company Limited in 1925, was closed in 1930 and rebuilt in 1966/1967. It continued in production throughout the 1970s and was closed in 1983, although supplies of its single malt whisky are still available. When Port Ellen was closed in 1983, Diageo did knocked down some of the buildings, repurposed others, and destroyed the stills. The distillery houses a malting which continues to supply all Islay distilleries, as per an agreement signed in 1987. The dwindling stocks of Port Ellen whisky are owned by Diageo; due to the closing of the distillery, its whisky is a collectors item. On 9 October 2017, Diageo announced that the distillery will reopen in 2020, following a £35 million investment in re-opening both Port Ellen and also their closed Brora distillery in Sutherland, which also closed in 1983. Diageo suggested the first new release might be of a 12 year old expression, i.e, in 2032, but have left the door open for possibly earlier releases.[citation needed] On 8 May 2019, Diageo submitted plans to revive the distillery, and to build a new stillhouse. Diageo say they are going to considerable efforts to recreate as similar as possible new stills, and point to factory records from the 1980s, and have former Port Ellen employees working for them elsewhere on Islay to assist in an accurate recreation of the Port Ellen style.
