The Seventies

The decade began with the breakup of the The Beatles, and the death of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, moved swiftly on to happier events including the 1972 release of The Godfather, Linda Carter made her debut as Wonder Woman in ’75, and The Muppet Show launched in 1976. The decade ended with the Islamic revolution, and Margaret Thatcher became Britain’s first female Prime Minister.

For whisky lovers, the decade must belong to the now closed (albeit soon to be revived) Brora and Port Ellen distilleries. They came in to being at the very start of the 1970s and both outlasted the decade by only a couple of years. These are the most collectible and coveted of the Silent Stills. Other highlights would be our collection of Adelphi bottlings, most notably from Ardbeg. And what collectors' list does not feature Diageo’s Rare Malts bottling from 1970s distillations, including the silent stills of Brora, Rosebank and St Magdalene.

The 1970s shone bright for collectors, ahead of the rocky years of the 1980s when distilleries were mothballed as tastes changed. Oh, to have collected a few more bottles, when prices and tastes were quite so out of fashion!
