Port Ellen 1979 22 Year Old Special Releases 2001 - 1st Release 70cl / 56.2%
The first Port Ellen in Diageo's Special Releases series, distilled in 1979 and bottled in 2001 at 22 years old.
This is bottle number 3900 of 6000.
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 1979 22 Year Old sold at our online auction for £2,100
