Product Description

This stunning 40 year old Highland single malt was laid to rest at Brora in 1978 and bottled in celebration of the distillery's 200th anniversary in 2019.​​

​​​​One of just 1819 (nice touch!) bottles that scored a sensational 93 points with the WhiskyFun critics, this natural strength beauty was filled at 49.2% ABV and comes with its ultra premium original presentation case.

The Brora distillery (originally known as Clynelish) was founded by the Duke of Sutherland in 1819. It was closed in 1967 after opening a larger Clynelish site next-door, but were then to reopen the original site under the Brora name the following year. The second closure occurred in 1983, the Brora vintage stocks up to the closure are highly revered and sought after. In 2017, it was announced Diageo would resurrect this lost treasure, with the distillery eventually filling its first casks in May 2021.
