Carsebridge 1976 Cadenhead's 41 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 it was not officially bottled as a single grain until over 30 years after its closure. Independent labels like this have always provided the best opportunity to try its elusive unblended spirit.
This whisky was distilled in 1976 and laid to rest in a single Hogshead for 41 years before being bottled by Cadenhead's in Spring 2018.
