The famous Port Ellen Distillery operated between 1966 and 1983, and this supernatural and rare Spirit was distilled only a year before it went silent. It was bottled in 2014 and proved to be incredibly rich and peaty.
 
It's also insanely rare: only 60 bottles were made. It's more than just a collectible; it's a historical treasure. Quite frankly, we wouldn't dare open it.
 
*This bottle is a collector's item. We will not be able to entertain any refunds or exchanges. 
 
**Individual orders limited to one item per person, as we wish to give everyone the opportunity to participate.

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.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
