Glencraig 1975 25 Years Old Connoisseur's Choice

$895 AUD

40% 70 cl

This bears the old Gordon and MacPhail map of Scotland label, which appeared for a number of years on the Connoisseur’s Choice series. This expression was distilled in 1975 and bottled 25 years later in the year 2000. It comes complete with the original carton, which, despite its flimsy nature, has stood the test of time. The fill is comfortably into the neck.

This product is located in the United Kingdom.

Distillery

Glencraig Distillery

This is a “ghost” within a living distillery. Like Miltonduff, Glenburgie was home to a pair of ‘Lomond’ stills from 1958 to 1981, which produced a malt whisky known as Glencraig. The Lomond stills were removed in 1981 and replaced by conventional pot stills and so Glencraig had a life of barely 23 years, all of them during Hiram Walker’s ownership of Glenburgie/Glencraig. The latter name was created in honour of the company’s then production director, Willie Craig.

The product went exclusively for blending although some independent bottlings are still knocking around.
