ST. MAGDALENE/ LINLITHGOW 1975 26 YEAR OLD - SIGNATORY VINTAGE

DISTILLERY CLOSED 1983

bottled in 2001, number 161 of 354, with presentation case

70cl/ 51.5%
Note: Built by Sebastian Henderson in the mid-1800s, St. Magdalene operated for over 200 years before its closure in 1983. With a capacity of 1 million litres per annum, the traditional coal-fired stills and naturally sourced water from the Union Canal produced a distinctively floral lowland malt, characterised by smoky undertones. As the majority of production went into blending, no official bottlings were released until the 1990s. Only two such bottlings were issued, one as part of Diageo's Rare Malts series, the other one of Diageo's special releases in 2004 marking a revived interest in this 'lost' distillery.
