Royal Brackla 15 Year Old Single Oloroso Cask #3159
Founded in 1817, Brackla distillery was the first in Scotland to be granted a Royal Warrant, becoming Royal Brackla at the behest of King William IV in 1835. The distillery was primarily tasked with providing malt for blending, and became part of DCL (now Diageo) in 1943. It was one of the many distilleries that they were forced to close due to a production surplus in the 1980s however, mothballed between 1985 and 1991. Royal Brackla was sold along with the rest of those associated with the Dewar's brand to Bacardi in 1998. It was bottled by United Distillers as part of the Flora & Fauna range, within the Rare Malts Selection, but it was not until 1999 under Bacardi ownership it first would first appear under its own unique single malt brand. Even then, distribution was limited until it was eventually relaunched in 2014 as part of company’s Last Great Malts collection, alongside Aberfeldy, Aultmore and The Deveron.
A rare single cask from Royal Brackla bottled at 15 years of age from oloroso sherry cask #3159.
