product Details

Ladyburn 8 Year Old Pure Malt

Ladyburn was a short-lived distillery, constructed by William Grant & Sons within their Girvan grain complex in 1966. The intention was to provide malt whisky for blending, easing some of the strain on Glenfiddich which was becoming a popular single malt at the time. A need for the Girvan grain distillery to expand meant that Ladyburn was dismantled after less than 10 years, closing on November 15th 1975. Official and independent bottlings are incredibly scarce as a result, but it is a well-regarded spirit amongst those who have been lucky to sample it.  

This is an 8 year old bottling from the 1990s. As was the William Grant & Sons style at the time, the label reads "Pure Malt" instead of single malt. Despite being early champions of the single malt category, they company were slow adopters of the phrase, and "Pure Malt" appeared on their flagship Glenfiddich bottling until 2000.
