Ladyburn 1974 40 Year Old Cask #89/199-74 - 48.6%
The whisky boom of the 1960s resulted in a brief fashion for malt distilleries being ensconced within grain distilleries: an example of this was Kinclaith in Strathclyde and this was exactly was Ladyburn was.
This incredibly rare single malt has been aged for 40 years, much longer than the distillery itself was open for.
Date cask filled: 21st November 1974.
Date Cask Selected: 30th March 2014.
Bottling Date: 25th November 2014.
Type of Cask: First fill bourbon.
Cask Number: 89/199-74.
Girvan’s operation needed to expand in 1975 and due to this Ladyburn was dismantled. Its spirit lingers on because, in 2007, another single malt distillery opened within Girvan – Ailsa Bay.
