    In 2009, a selection of acknowledged experts, including a group of distillery managers, got together at Blair Athol Distillery to choose a single cask from a selection of distilleries, as part of an original distillers first single cask collection.
    The Linkwood 1996 has matured in a Bodega Sherry European Oak Cask number 10552; filled on 18/12/1996 and bottled on 05/02/2009. One of 480 bottles.

    A tale of two distilleries...

    Linkwood distillery was founded in 1821 by Peter Brown and these days the site is on the outskirts of Elgin, as the town has expanded over the years. The distillery was rebuilt in 1873 to increase capacity and expanded in 1897 to double the capacity during the boom of that period. The original distillery was again rebuilt in 1962 and then a new distillery (imaginatively called "Linkwood B") was built in 1971, as was a common distillery expansion strategy during that time.

    This new distillery ran alongside the old two-still distillery (by then called "Linkwood A") until 1985.  Linkwood A was then run intermittently until it was demolished in 2013, when the two stills were rehoused in an extension to Linkwood B.

    One wonders whether the remaining distillery will continue to be called "Linkwood B" now that there is no "Linkwood A"?
