Diageo is releasing two new Port Ellen whiskies ahead of the distillery’s reopening this spring. No word on pricing, but expect it to be expensive. —————— Today we are proud to introduce Port Ellen Gemini, a legendary new set of twin whiskies from Port Ellen, marking a trailblazing reimagining of the historic distillery, coming this spring At 44-Years-Old, Port Ellen Gemini is the oldest ever Single Malt Scotch Whisky to be released directly from the distillery. The whisky was drawn from three exceptional casks specifically selected long ago for this new experiment, and split into two whiskies which took diverging paths of maturation. Port Ellen Gemini Original allows an appreciation of the distillery’s time-honoured craft and the characterful Islay smoke whilst Port Ellen Gemini Remnant uses the rediscovered remnant cask in a world first, capturing the ancestral DNA of the distillery’s past. Closed for over forty years, Port Ellen will be born again as a distillery re-envisioned for the future, pushing the boundaries of experimentation in Scotch Whisky with a mission to investigate the mysterious flavours of smoke. We look forward to sharing more soon. Head over to https://lnkd.in/eu8F_AEa to find out more.
