From their archives, world-leading malt whisky specialists Gordon & MacPhail have donated an exceptionally rare bottle of Glenugie that was made in 1970 - the same year Doddie was born!
This special Glenugie bottling was distilled in 1970 at the peak of the distillery’s success. Located in Peterhead, north of Aberdeen, Glenugie was once the most easterly distillery in Scotland and its whisky-makers were considered some of the best in the country. Unfortunately, as the story goes with many distilleries in the 1983 recession, Glenugie couldn’t escape closure and has been considered a silent distillery ever since.
Most whisky produced at Glenugie was used in blends, with single malt production considered a rarity, making this 1970 bottling a true one-off. It was bottled 42 years later in 2012 for Gordon & MacPhail’s prestigious Rare Old series. Although Glenugie isn’t the most widely-known name in whisky today, its bottlings are highly regarded among connoisseurs and are becoming increasingly scarce.
