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 every Independent Bottler offered Port Ellen single malt. There is no remaining stock now and demand for Port Ellen exceeds supply thousand times over. The whisky presented here comes from a single sherry butt filled in the spring of 1983 and bottled in the fall of 2008 as part of Douglas McGibbon (subsidiary of Douglas Laing & Co.) Provenance rage. The Provenance label is inspired by the Scottish weather, sometimes offering four seasons within a single day. Label of each bottling highlights the season of distillation as well as the season of bottling.
