St. Magdalene Distillery, founded 1795, was one of five distilleries located in the small town of Linlithgow and the last one to close. The distillery was a victim of whisky overproduction and lack of customers’ demand from the 1970s and 80s. The last distillation took place in 1983 and within the next decade most of the distillery buildings have been converted into apartments. St. Magdalene single malt was included into prestigious Rare Malt range twice, here we got the final release from 1998 containing whisky distilled in 1979, aged in refill bourbon and sherry casks and bottled at natural strength of 63.8% abv. Rare Malts range was phased out in 2005 and its value is constantly rising.
