Port Ellen, along with Brora, is the most mourned closed Scottish distillery. Port Ellen was producing whisky from 1825 to 1929, resumed production in 1967 after extensive renovation, only to close for good in 1983. In time of closure it has distilling capacity of 1.7 million liters of spirit per annum and was the smallest of the three distilleries on Islay owned by DCL. In 2001 Diageo, the brand owner bottled the first ‘Annual Release’ of Port Ellen and until 2016 we counted total of 16 bottlings. Here we have the second release from 2002, the 24 years old whisky distilled in 1978 and bottled at natural strength of 59,35% abv with an outrun of 12000 bottles.
