Despite being a ghost distillery, Brora remains to be one of Scotch whisky’s most important — more so after it once took over production of heavily peated whisky for blending when Islay experienced a shortage from a four-year-long drought until 1973. Since then, the lightly peated Highland style that it’s come to be known for today has become a firm favourite.
Over the years, the Highlands facility has been known to release some of the most collectible Scotch whiskies the world has ever seen, its hype fuelled by its rareness. To celebrate its storied heritage and imminent re-opening after a meticulous three-year restoration by Diageo, the distillery has unveiled a one-off special release called the Brora Triptych.
Even more symbolic is that the set will be released at the same time as the reopening of the distillery. The trio of extremely rare single malt whiskies will each represent a facet of Brora’s distinctive style and history, and is the first time all three styles have been released in one collector’s set. Each collectible set of the Brora Triptych will also be accompanied by a personal invitation from Master Distiller Stewart Bowman to visit and experience the distillery in person.
