BALVENIE ORIGINAL BOTTLING 50 YEAR OLD 42.0 ABV 1937


Distilled in 1937, bottled in 1987, distilled and bottled by William Grant & Sons Ltd. of Dufftown, label and capsule very slightly worn, packed in orginal wooden box


Bottled by William Grant in 1987, this limited release of only 500 bottles was purchased in its entirety by the Milroy brothers. Despite Balvenie not being a particularly well recognised distillery at the time, the quality of this release spoke for itself, and the Milroys managed to sell every bottle with little effort. There are now only a few left in existence.
