Carsebridge 1973 Thompson Brothers 46 Year Old
The history of Carsebridge dates back to 1798 when it was built by John Bald in order to produce malt whisky. The decision to convert to grain production was made by his son, an astute businessman known as John 'The Politic' Bald II. He installed two coffey stills and transformed it into one of the largest whisky producers in Scotland. The distillery was one of the founding members of DCL in 1877, securing its future for the next 100 years. Sadly, it was surplus to the requirements of DCL's new owners, Guinness, and it was closed in 1983. It is now demolished, and although it was never officially bottled as a single grain, independent labels have provided some old age-statements like this.
The Thompson Brothers began their whisky bottling in enterprise in 2013, establishing the Black Isle Whisky Company in their native Dornoch. The brothers, Simon and Philip, renamed the operation as the Dornoch Distilling Company in 2015, opening the Dornoch distillery the following year. In addition to distilling their own whisky, their independent bottlings continue to flourish, with many exceptional tasting and fantastically labelled single malts and rums released under the Thompson Bros banner.
This whisky was distilled in 1973 and aged for 46 years. One of 437 bottles.
