Product Description

1966 – Distillery built

The Ladyburn distillery has the distinction of being the shortest operational distillery in the history of Scotch whisky. It made whisky for only nine years from 1966 to 1975. A Lowland distillery, it was located on the same site as the William Grant & Sons grain distillery in Girvan to provide malt whisky for use in the Grant’s Standfast Blend.

1975 – Ghost Distillery

It is now a ‘ghost distillery’, having been completely demolished in 1976. We still have some casks of Ladyburn maturing in our warehouses, but these are extremely rare. Once these ancient reserves of Ladyburn are gone they cannot be replaced, making them collector’s items.

Exceptionally Rare Whisky

This whisky comes from a rare single cask laid down on 21st November 1974 that was bottled forty years later. 

The unique flavour profile of Ladyburn is characterised by aromas of polished wood and leather, with linseed oil, dried orange and prune notes on the palate. It is a whisky like no other, and can be made no more.

NOSE: Delicate and light with hints of virgin olive oil and subtle citrus

TASTE: A full mouthfeel with a rounded fruitiness and rich vanilla oak. Beautifully mellow and silky smooth.
