About the distillery

The Rosebank distillery was situated in Camelon on the banks of the Forth and Clyde canal between Edinburgh and Glasgow. Its name originated after the roses which grew along the side of the canal.

Rosebank was once considered one of the premier lowland whiskies but United Distillers mothballed the distillery in 1993.  The reason given for the mothballing was that its effluent treatment would have required a £2m upgrade in order to comply with European standards of the time, this did not make it commercially viable. At the time of its closure, it still retained many historical features in the production of the whisky.

Other Information

The Rare Malts selection comprises a stunning selection of whiskies from operational and lost distilleries which were bottled by Diageo between 1995 and 2005.

Distilled in 1981 and bottled as a 20 year old this is bottle number 3203.
