Port Ellen was the smallest of the three DCL distilleries located on Islay. It ceased production in 1983 and for about 20 years following its closure even the smallest Independent Bottler included Port Ellen single malt in his offer. Jean Boyer was one of the first persons importing Scottish single malts to France (1975) and since 1993 started operating as Independent Bottler. His 2004 edition, part of Best Casks of Scotland range, comprises whisky from first fill sherry cask (no. 1346), which yielded 380 bottles at 46% abv. The cask was filled on March 22, 1983, roughly two months before the distillery ceased operation.
