Girvan 1990 Thompson Brothers 31 Year Old
The Thompson Brothers began their whisky bottling in enterprise in 2013, establishing the Black Isle Whisky Company in their native Dornoch. The brothers, Simon and Philip, renamed the operation as the Dornoch Distilling Company in 2015, opening the Dornoch distillery the following year. In addition to distilling their own whisky, their independent bottlings continue to flourish, with many exceptional tasting and fantastically labelled single malts and rums released under the Thompson Bros banner.
This whisky was distilled into a single refill hogshead on 3rd December 1990 and aged for 31 years.
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.
