Rosebank 15 Year Old Distillers Agency 1980s / Zenith Import
Rosebank is a much-sought after Lowland single malt. The distillery was initially shortlisted by United Distillers as their Lowland entry to the Classic Malts series when it was slated for launch in 1988, but was eventually substituted for Glenkinchie on the belief that it provided better opportunities for tourism. Rosebank was then shut down in 1993, but has recently been acquired by Ian Macleod Distillers, who have a view to resurrecting this classic lost distillery in the near future.
Prior to the formation of United Distillers in 1988, the distilleries within the DCL portfolio were often licensed out to its blending companies, in this instance it was The Distillers Agency. When United Distillers succeeded DCL, one of their first orders of business was to reclaim control of the distribution of their single malts. Rosebank single malt would not be bottled again until 1991 when a 12 year old was re-introduced as part of the Flora & Fauna brand.
This is a 1980s bottling. It was produced exclusively for Italian importer, G.P. Bonfanti and his Zenith Italia distribution company. DCL provided a number of Rosebank as well as some sought after Royal Brackla for him as well.
