product Details

Glenury 1980 Silver Seal 20 Year Old

Glenury Royal is so-called due to its earliest proprietor, Captain James Barclay, being a close friend of King William IV. The distillery is one of many picked up by DCL (now Diageo) during an era of optimism in the mid-20th century, before being closed down in the early 1980s after a market downturn created an oversupply. Indeed, Glenury closed in 1985 and was subsequently demolished. As such, official bottlings are rare, especially those under the Downie and Garron brand names. Bottlings from independent labels like this are increasingly so as well.

Distilled in November 1980 and bottled in July 2001 by the Silver Seal Whisky Company Ltd.

One of 620 bottles.
