Girvan 1964 Whisky Agency 48 Year Old / TWE
Girvan distillery was built in 1963 by William Grant & Sons after a disagreement with DCL resulted in the latter severing their grain supply for the Standfast blend. It was built and in production within 9 months, with the first spirit running on Christmas day, just as it had at Glenfiddich. Today the distillery still provides grain for the Grant's blends, but has also been marketed as a single grain, first as the short-lived Black Barrel, and more recently under the Girvan Patent Still brand. Despite the gaps in time between distillery bottlings, the market was regularly populated by independent releases like this.
This whisky was distilled in 1964 and aged in a single ex-Sherry butt for 48 years.
The Whisky Agency was founded in Germany by Carsten Ehrlich, who is also the driving force behind The Whisky Fair in Limburg, one of the world's most renowned annual whisky gatherings. Their passion is unquestionable, and they have a regular release schedule of high quality single casks, often in collaboration with some of the most respected whisky bars and retailers. The Whisky Agency's labels include The Perfect Dram, Liquid Library, Private Stock, and Liquid Sun.
