592 bottles of 1965 blended Scotch released

The Last Drop Distillers is releasing its fourth limited edition bottling, a rare 48 year old blended Scotch whisky of distinguished provenance. Only 592 bottles of this exclusive elixir exist. 

The youngest malts and grains in the blend were distilled half a century ago, in 1965, many are older, and some of the distilleries long since silent.

Twenty-seven years ago, a small batch of the original blend was selected to be refilled into fresh ex-bourbon American oak casks for further ageing. Since then, these casks have been nurtured, gently maturing, tucked away in a forgotten corner of one of the oldest traditional warehouses in Highlands of Scotland.

The unfiltered whisky is taken direct from the cask, at its natural strength of 48.6% ABV, hand-bottled and then hand dipped in hot wax to seal its driven cork.

Each bottle, together with its signature 50ml replica miniature, is presented nestled in a creamy, soft suede lining of a hand-made, forest green leather case. A discreet drawer opens to reveal a pocket-sized, leather bound booklet, which certifies the bottle and has additional blank pages for personal tasting notes.  

The anticipated retail price will be in the region of £2,600 or US$4,000.

Stock available on allocation from The Last Drop Distillers.

The Last Drop Distillers specialises in discovering legendary, limited-edition spirits, forgotten in ancient warehouses, yet retaining their original freshness. Previous releases include: The 1960 blended Scotch whisky, The 50 Year Old blended Scotch whisky, The 1950 Cognac.
