This iconic 14 year old Highland single malt Scotch whisky was distilled in the 1950’s at the Clynelish distillery and bottled by the Royal Marine Hotel, Brora, in the late 1960’s to early 1970’s.
Filled at no less than 92 proof (approx. 52.57% ABV), this superb old relic is now exceptionally rare.
We are led to believe that these bottles were filled from casks that were kept in the cellar at the Royal Marine Hotel, with guests then being offered the chance to purchase a bottle. It is imaginable that many patrons did not even perceive the liquid gold they had just obtained!
The Royal Marine Hotel in Brora was originally designed as a private home in 1913 by Sir Robert Lorimer. The hotel still welcomes guests today and many of the rooms are part of the original house. Well worth a visit …especially now the legendary Brora distillery has restarted production!
