The future of Strathisla Distillery didn’t look bright in the late 1940s. It’s owner was convicted of tax evasion, went bankrupt and consequently the run-down distillery was put for auction. The winning bid of £71,000 granted the ownership to Chivas Bros. and a new lease of life to the distillery. Furthermore Strathisla malt became a backbone of Chivas Regal, the most popular premium blend. The single malt expression presented here comes from a single refill hogshead no.

Label of each bottling highlights the season of distillation as well as the season of bottling.
