product Details

Rosebank 15 Year Old 1980s / Zenith Import

Rosebank is a much-sought after Lowland single malt. The distillery was initially shortlisted by United Distillers as their Lowland entry to the Classic Malts series when it was slated for launch 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 is a particularly rare release, a distillery bottling produced exclusively for the renowned Italian importer, G.P. Bonfanti and his Zenith Italia firm. Both this 15 year old and a 20 year old were bottled for them at full and reduced proofs.

This is one of 13,596 bottles filled at 50% ABV, with the remainder of the 15,996 batch filled at full proof.
