Diageo’s predecessor, United Distillers, launched Rare Malts selection in 1995. It followed The Classic Malts and Flora & Fauna series and originally included whiskies from closed distilleries, always bottled uncut and unchill-filtered.
As stocks diminished the company included rare vintages from the distilleries still in operation. Inchgower Distillery has been producing whisky since 1871. The 27 years old Rare Malts bottling comprises whisky distilled in 1976, when Inchgower operated under ownership of Arthur Bell & Sons. Bottled in 2004 at natural strength of 55.6% abv with an outrun of 6000 bottles, just a year before Rare Malts series has been discontinued. Its value has been rising ever since.
