PORT DUNDAS AGED 11 YEARS
Port Dundas was closed in 2010 after 200 years of whisky production in Glasgow. At the same time as the closure, a nearby cooperage which made Hogshead oak casks since 1770 was also closed.A rare single cask, single grain Scotch whisky from the now-silent distillery of Port Dundas in Glasgow.
Since almost the entire production from the distillery was used as a constituent part in many blended whiskies, Port Dundas is rare as a single grain whisky.
This Port Dundas was distilled in 1988 and bottled by Hunter Laing under their 'Sovereign Grain' brand, a range of old single cask grain whiskies bottled at full cask strength.

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
Port Dundas was closed in 2010 after 200 years of whisky production in Glasgow. At the same time as the closure, a nearby cooperage which made Hogshead oak casks since 1770 was also closed.
Port Dundas was a merger of two searate distilleries on the same site and, whilst a large distillery with a production of almost 40 million litres of spirit per year, most production was used for blended whisky and single grain varieties of Port Dundas are uncommon.
