The Ladyburn Distillery has the distinction of being the shortest operational distillery in the history of Scotch whisky. It is now a "ghost distillery", having been completely demolished in 1976. William Grant & Sons have kept some casks of Ladyburn maturing in their warehouses. Once these ancient reserves of Ladyburn are gone they cannot be replaced. This rare bottling contains whisky of at least 42 years of age, with a distinctive taste, much sought after by the connoisseur.
