Port Dundas 1978 Clan Denny 33 Year Old
The Clan Denny label was originally launched in the mid-2000s by Douglas Laing, and bottled by their subsidiary company, Hunter Hamilton. The brand specialised in bottling well-aged single grain whiskies from single casks. When Douglas Laing was carved up between brothers, Stewart and Fred, in 2013, the Hunter Hamilton trading name disappeared, and the Clan Denny brand remained with Douglas Laing. It is nowadays bottled by another subsidiary, Douglas McGibbon, and has branched out to include whisky from other categories as well. These original Hunter Hamilton releases are very highly regarded.
This is a 33 year old single grain from Port Dundas, distilled in 1978 and bottled from a refill hogshead.
Built in 1811 at the highest point of the city of Glasgow, Port Dundas grain distillery was a true giant of its day. It became a founding member of DCL in 1877, and over the years has been key component in many of its blends, including Johnnie Walker and White Horse. By the end of the 19th century it was the largest distillery in Scotland, armed with three Coffey and five pot stills, the giant was producing well over two million gallons of spirit a year. Having survived two fires in the early 20th century, the distillery’s story came to an end in 2010 when Diageo the modern iteration of DCL, closed it down to consolidate its grain production at the newly expanded Cameronbridge.
