Port Dundas 52 Year Old Cask Strength 2017 Release
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.
Part of Diageo's annual Special Releases in 2017, this is a 52 year old cask strength single grain. The limited release has been aged exclusively in refill American oak hogsheads.
One of 752 bottles, this was the oldest ever Diageo Special Release at the time of bottling.
