Glen Scotia 46 YO (contact us!)
Introducing the Glen Scotia 46-Year-Old Whisky, an extraordinary expression born from the passage of time and the unique climate of Campbeltown. Initially matured in refill bourbon casks, this exceptional spirit was then tenderly nurtured, allowing its character to develop and flourish. In 2011, it was carefully re-casked into first-fill bourbon barrels, where it rested and evolved for an additional six years. Finally, the liquid found its way into a single first-fill oloroso hogshead for a final four-year maturation period. It was bottled at its natural strength of 41.7%, unfiltered and non-chill, to preserve its integrity.
By 1974, Campbeltown’s whisky-making empire had dwindled, and the majority of its local distilleries had faded into history. Those few that remained embarked on a journey of adaptation, embracing a changing world. For Glen Scotia, this period marked the end of a truly special chapter in its history. Distillery Manager Mike Smith and his team meticulously cared for the casks, carrying on a tradition passed down from his father, symbolizing an old-fashioned approach rooted in tradition, care, and craftsmanship.
Today, Distillery Manager & Master Distiller Iain McAlister continues the legacy, honoring the exceptional character of these cherished casks and ensuring an outstanding final result.
