About the distillery
Strathisla distillery is the oldest continuously operating distillery in Scotland. It was founded as the Milltown Distillery by George Taylor and Alexander Milne in 1786 as an alternative to the waning of flax dressing industry. He leased the land from the Earl of Seafield.
By 1830, the distillery was owned by William Longmore, later William Longmore Ltd. In 1879, the distillery suffered terribly from a fire, but was rebuilt with a bottling plant. Bought in 1940 by Jay Pomeroy, a fraudulent financier, it was later acquired in 1950 by James Barclay of Chivas Bros.
This limited edition Strathisla, Cask Strength - 26 Year Old 1989, is part of a special cask strength range created by Chivas Brothers and was originally only available to visitors of the distillery.
Bottled straight from the cask, this whisky was distilled in 1989 and bottled in 2015.
This is bottle number 464 of 516.
