This is the oldest whisky ever to be released, a single first-fill sherry butt of Mortlach distilled on 17 November 1939 was bottled at an incredible 75 years of age in 2015 by Gordon & MacPhail.
Mortlach 75 year old was matured in a first-fill Sherry butt cask. Decanter number 97 of only 100 decanters. It is presented in the iconic teardrop-shaped Generations decanter. -

The decanter sits on a white presentation plinth with two specially designed crystal glasses. The decanter is packaged in a luxury Aniline leather travel bag and accompanied by a specially commissioned book, Seven Nights with Mortlach. Acclaimed whisky writer, Charles Maclean and international bestselling author, Alexander McCall Smith have joined forces to tell tales of Scotland, whisky and the people behind this special malt, accompanied by illustrations from up and coming Scottish artists.
