Sunday 27th February, 2011
4:30pm to 4:30pm
With Derek Hancock KQ, director of Gordon & MacPhail
*A WORLD FIRST!
Derek Hancock has been involved in the Scotch whisky industry for over 30 years. He has seen the progress of Scotland’s biggest independent bottler over the years and is in charge of exports, he is involved at every level of the business and here is a man who knows his whisky.
However this is no ordinary tasting, we are privileged to opening one of the 200ml Mortlach 1938 70 year old whiskies, along with a selection of three other “old Mortlachs” all bottled by Gordon and MacPhail of Elgin, Scotland. There were only 54 of the 700ml bottles along with 164 bottles of the 200ml, and we have secured some of the 200 ml and are opening one for the tasting. The 700ml bottles sold out in 2 days worldwide at £10,000 each and the 200ml are selling for £2500 each (approx $5555.00).
This is the opportunity of a lifetime, a chance to try the oldest whisky ever bottled. This four Mortlach tasting is one of THE tastings to experience at DramFest 2011.
