Dramfool 1976 Carsebridge 44 y/o Lowland Single Grain Scotch Whisky 41.5% 70cl

40th Release Carsebridge 1976. Distilled on 12/03/1976 and bottled on 02/10/2020. 

Bottle number 52 and limited to just 122 bottles.

Matured in a Bourbon Hogshead for 44 years.  

The busy brewing town of Alloa was the perfect site for John Bald to erect a distillery, what with a direct access to nearby coal pits, grain and malt delivered via the Alloa Harbour, and access to water at the Gartmorn Dam.

At the time of a visit by Victorian whisky writer Alfred Barnard in the late 1880s, Carsebridge covered 10 acres and had an output of between 1.4-1.7 million gallons. By the time it became part of Scottish Grain Distillers in 1966, it was one of the biggest grain distilleries in Scotland.

Carsebridge has only ever been bottled as a single grain with high age statements by independent bottlers in recent years, though as a result of its closure in 1983.

Once one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, and at the time of it’s closing the largest grain distillery in Scotland. Alas Carsebridge was one of the many casualties of the 1980s surplus and strategic re-positioning. The site originally leased for ‘seventeen Bolls and one firlot of good and sufficient Barley’ per annum which grew to such massive proportions as to require it’s own fire engine and team of 40 men is now a business park. The former distillery manager’s house, a Grade II listed building does however survive.

This 40th Release from Dramfool is a very special bottle aged 44 years old from a now closed grain distillery.
