In 1983, the Brora Distillery in the Highlands was mothballed. This means there are practically no leftover barrels of Brora juice left, which explains why the most expensive bottle ever to be sold by Diageo was an original style of Brora.

And now, thanks to the Vault, you can own an original style of Brora Single Malt, too. A 1978 vintage Brora, to be precise. It was aged in both refill American and refill European oak casks for 35 years. Clocking in at cask strength, this rare find was part of Diageo’s Special Release collection in 2014.

1 of 2,964 individually numbered bottles.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
