Brora 1978 - 200th Anniversary 40 Year Old Whisky, 70 cl

Regular price £4,459.99

This 40 Year Old hails from the silent Brora Distillery (though plans are under way to revive it!), released to celebrate the 200th anniversary of its opening. The distillery certainly went all out for the celebrations with this impressive whisky! The single malt is a vatting of 12 American oak hogsheads laid down during an era of peated whisky production at the distillery. After four decades, a limited 1,819 bottles were released, as a nod to the year the distillery was founded in (yes, it was 1819), bottled at 49.2% ABV. Read more.

    Brora was founded in 1819, originally under the name Clynelish. The distillery was established by the Marquis of Stafford who, after marrying into the Sutherland family, became the first Duke of Sutherland. The distillery was initially intended to take some proportion of local whisky supply away from the smugglers. In 1896, James Ainslie & Heilbron, a Glasgow-based blending company, acquired the distillery and rebuilt it. Brora still retains the floor maltings and kiln that were then installed.

    Tasting Notes

    Rich fruit, dried figs, dates, white pepper and earthy peat smoke.

    Rob Roy Cocktail Recipe

    If there was ever a cocktail to make you feel the glitz and glamour of the history and chic society of New York, it's ordering a Rob Roy Cocktail. This 19th century cocktail is believed to have been created at New York City’s Waldorf Hotel (if you want to visit today, you can head to the Waldorf Astoria). But who is Rob Roy? The cocktail is named not after the Scottish folk hero and outlaw Robert Roy MacGregor, but after the Broadway show that was showing at the time. The Rob Roy is a riff on a Manhattan, with their only difference being the base liquor. A Rob Roy is made using blended Scotch Whisky while a Manhattan is made with Rye Whisky. As such, the cocktail is malty and smooth, with a bit of spice on the finishing end.
