Description

The 10th edition Port Ellen from Diageo's annual Special Releases. This was distilled in 1978, matured for 31 years, and bottled at cask strength in 2010.

This is bottle number 0029 of 3000.

Port Ellen was established as a malt mill in 1825, and later developed into a distillery by John Ramsay. The distillery closed in 1983, though the maltings continue to supply many of Islay's distilleries. Stocks of Port Ellen are still available and the whisky has become highly collectible since the distillery closed, though it is no longer part of Diageo's annual Special Releases. In 2017, Diageo announced that Port Ellen distillery is to be rebuilt in its original buildings, and would reopen in 2020.

This Port Ellen 1978 31 Year Old sold at our online auction for £1,400
