Strathclyde 1989 Cadenhead's 32 Year Old Sherry Cask
The Authentic Collection was launched by Wm. Cadenhead in 1991, and included whiskies from several rare closed Scottish and Irish distilleries, bottled for the company's 150th anniversary. It would later go on to become a mainstay of their portfolio, as the cask strength alternative to the Original Collection, which replaced their famous "dumpy" bottlings in the early 1990s. The Authentic Collection is now the flagship Cadenhead brand, and one of the most recognisable independent labels on the market.
This whisky was distilled in 1989 and bottled in 2021.
Strathclyde distillery is located in the Gorbals district of Glasgow, and was built in 1927 by London-based distillers, Seager-Evans, in order to supply grain neutral spirit for its gin. The company bought into the whisky business 9 years later, acquiring the Long John brand, the popularity of which saw a small malt distillery hidden within the large grain plant between 1957 and 1975, known as Kinclaith. The distillery was expanded in the 1970s under the watch of American giants, Schenley, and passed through the hands of Whitbread to Allied Distillers. Nowadays it is part of the Pernod-Ricard group, and since the closure of Port Dundas, is the last grain distillery in Glasgow.
