We may have lost the distillery to the history vaults of time but the Casks of Distinction have found an audience for this grand old malt to always be a part of our future.
The much-revered "Casks of Distinction" is a series of bottlings produced by Diageo to showcase some of their old and rare casks of rare and uniquely exceptional whisky. These are casks that have been specially selected by Diageo’s four Master Blenders and comprise a collection of 28 operating and closed distilleries.
One of those closed (ghost) distilleries featured in the Casks of Distinction series is the Lowland-based Carsebridge. Before its eventual closure in 1983, Carsebridge was still producing some of Scotland's finest single grain whisky. Distilled in 1976, this single cask grain is one such example that was matured in an American Oak cask for 44 years. It was eventually bottled in October, 2020, with a limited number of only 81 bottles. This month is your unique opportunity to own bottle number 79.
We may have lost the distillery to the history vaults of time, however, the Casks of Distinction have found an audience for this grand old malt to always be a part of our future.
