At a stunning 75 years old this incredible Mortlach is the oldest whisky ever bottled. Released by Gordon & MacPhail as part of their Generations range, the whisky was distilled on 17th November 1939 and matured in a single first-fill sherry butt before being bottled at cask strength in 2015.
The precious liquid is presented in a handcrafted crystal teardrop-shaped decanter, which features 75 multilevel cuts in the glass representing the 75 years of maturation. Accompanying the decanter is a white presentation plinth, two crystal glasses and specially commissioned book, all packaged within a luxury Aniline leather travel bag.
With only 100 decanters released for sale, this could easily be named the world's most exclusive single malt whisky.
