Tomatin Decades

Tomatin was once the largest distillery in Scotland, with an expansion in 1976 bringing its still count to a whopping 23 (with a capacity for 10 million litres). An over-stretch at the time, it was forced into liquidation in 1985, never having run at full capacity. The following year it became Scotland's first ever Japanese-owned distillery after it was saved by a consortium of long-term customers. Nowadays it provides the heart to the popular Antiquary blend in addition to continuing to produce a highly regarded single malt.

A commemorative bottle for Douglas Campbell's 50 years at the distillery. He selected casks from each decade to create a unique single malt. Here are the casks that were used:

  • Refill Sherry Hogshead from 1967
  • Oloroso Sherry Butts from 1976
  • Refill Sherry Hogsheads from 1984
  • First Fill Bourbon Barrels from 1990
  • First Fill Bourbon Barrels from 2005.
