Product Details

This fabulous 43 year old Speyside single malt was laid to rest at the Imperial distillery on the 16th July 1979 and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail for their Private Collection on the 12th January 2023.

Yielded from refill American hogshead number 5317 at a natural strength 48.7% ABV, this is one of only 133 bottles that comes complete with fine oak presentation case.

The Recollection Series are annual releases that offer a unique opportunity for whisky enthusiasts and collectors to enjoy forgotten masterpieces that have been lying in wait at the G&M warehouse.

Imperial was founded in 1897, but had a short life of just two years before being reopened again after World War I in 1919. After being mothballed on a few more occasions in 1925 (reopening in 1955) and 1985, production restarted again in 1991. Sadly, the distillery was to be mothballed for the final time in 1998 and the site was finally demolished in 2013.
