Rosebank 21 Year Old Speciality Drinks / The Roses Edition #1 'True Love'
Speciality Drinks was established in 1999 as the independent bottling arm of The Whisky Exchange, which launched its online retail site the same year. Their first bottlings were under the Single Malts of Scotland label in 2005, followed by the Elements of Islay range and Port Askaig single malt brand in 2006 and 2009, respectively. The company was renamed Elixir Distillers in 2017.
This Rosebank is one of 498 bottles in the first The Roses release, bottled in 2016.
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.
