Pittyvaich 29 Year Old Cask Strength Special Release 2019
Pittyvaich could be considered the front-runner for shortest-lived Speyside distillery. It was built in 1975 by Arthur Bell & Sons, next-door to their Dufftown distillery, in order to increase provision for its popular blends. Arthur Bell & Sons were bought by Guinness in 1985, who's merger with DCL to form United Distillers (now Diageo) the following year, saw the huge firm oversupplied by its enormous portfolio. Pittyvaich was an early candidate for closure, and was silenced in 1993 before later being demolished. The brief Flora & Fauna release was the only distillery bottling of Pittyvaich in its lifetime, and aside from the occasional official limited edition, the majority of releases have been increasingly sought after independents like this.
Part of the 2019 Diageo Special Releases, this Pittyvaich has been aged for 29 years before bottling at cask strength.
One of 5568 bottles.
