product Details

Rosebank 20 Year Old George Strachan 1970s

Rosebank is a much-sought after Lowland single malt. The distillery was initially selected by Diageo as their Lowland entry to the Classic Malts series when it was launched in 1988, but was eventually substituted for Glenkinchie on the belief that it provided better opportunities for tourism. Rosebank was then shut down in 1993, but has recently been acquired by Ian Macleod Distillers, who have a view to resurrecting this classic lost distillery in the near future. 

This incredibly rare independent bottling was aged 20 years and bottled by George Strachan in the 1970s.

George Strachan was a delicatessen and general store founded in Deeside in 1926. They bottled some incredibly well regarded single malts between the 1960s and 1980s, many of which were sought out by Italian importers for their quality.
