Lot number: 090-5827

The first of the Seven Stills of Dufftown, Mortlach was established in 1823 by James Findlater. After a string of varous owners, the distillery's situation did not improve until railway surveyor and engineer George Cowie structured production and distribution.

It is one of the great iconic distilleries for its unique combination of stills and the fact that its spirit is distilled 2.81 times. Described by Dave Broom as, "the beast of Dufftown" its muscular and beefy style has won an army of followers over the years as the distillery recently shifted production from twelve to sixteen mashes per week.

Non-chill filtered, this non age statement Mortlach is a limited edition, which was bottled for the Spirit of Speyside festival in 2013. The whisky was created from a series of hand picked casks, each apparently selected to represent the individual aspects of Mortlach.

Bottled: 2013

48% ABV / 70cl

Please examine the images of the bottle, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
