• Port Ellen was established as a malt mill on Islay’s famous south coast in 1825. • In 1967 the distillery was rebuilt, producing through the 1970s and closing in 1983. • The Port Ellen name is kept alive by the island’s maltings. • Previous Special Releases of Port Ellen have regularly won Gold or Silver Medals at IWSC.
A 29 year old was also voted Best Single Malt Scotch, winning Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, 2009. • The equal oldest Port Ellen ever released, we think that this example perfectly illustrates the remarkable potential longevity of this now legendary single malt.
