Port Ellen was founded in 1825 by A. K. Mackay & Company on the Kildaton south coast of Islay. The Laird Campbell was also instrumental in the establishment of the distillery, as he was the highest-ranking clan official on the Isle at the time. The distillery was acquired by the Distillers Company Limited in 1925, was closed in 1930 and rebuilt in 1966/1967. It continued in production throughout the 1970s and was closed in 1983, although supplies of its single malt Whiskey are still available

Tasting Notes

Product Notes
Now very rare and highly sought after at this age, Port Ellen is from a closed distillery on the Isle of Islay. From refill American Oak hogsheads and butts filled in 1979, this is the equal oldest Port Ellen ever released. It's an elegant classic, hitting all the notes you could want in style with its fine balance of sweet fruit, honeyed citrus, smoke, warmth and oak.
