Girvan 1964 Berry Brothers and Rudd Exceptional Casks
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. Black Barrel was the first single grain brand that William Grant & Sons marketed it under, taking its name from the charred oak casks used in maturation. It was launched in 1995 and produced until 2013, later being replaced by the Girvan Patent Still brand the following year.
This was distilled in 1964 and bottled in 2022.
Berry Brothers & Rudd is a firm steeped in history. They were established in the late 17th century, and received a Royal Warrant from King Edward VII in 1903. The company has been bottling single malt whisky from almost as early as that, and produced their first ever blend, Cutty Sark, in 1923.
