The first Glenrothes Single Malt aged extra long and rare.
 
In 1879 the Glenrothes Distillery was founded James Stewart near the Burn of Rothes in Speyside. James also worked at the nearby Macallan Distillery, and he brought the knowledge he gained there to his new venture. The distillery itself is owned by The Edrington Group, but the Glenrothes Single Malt Whiskey produced there is owned by Berry Bros. & Rudd in an odd cooperative arrangement. What’s not bottled as Glenrothes Single Malt is in high demand as a core component of various blends, including Cutty Sark and The Famous Grouse.
 
The 1995 vintage of Glenrothes was the first year when a portion of their productions was set aside for Single Malt bottling. Prior to then, 100% went to blends. 70% of The Glenrothes 1995 Vintage was aged in refill Glenrothes casks and 30% in Sherry casks (American and Spanish oak). This batch was bottled in 2014 — making it 19 years old. And… it’s a winner. This savory dram has taken home many awards and was designated one of Ian Buxton’s “101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die.”
 
Smartass corner:
The Glenrothes Distillery has had some bad luck over the years. The still-house was badly damaged by fire in 1896, and then an explosion in 1903. In 1922 a fire in Warehouse No. 1 resulted in the total loss of the building and nearly a million liters of aging Whisky. And another major fire in 1962 required a complete remodel.
