The Vaults Collection

Cask No. 65.6

History in a glass

Speyside, Spey

We entered an old-fashioned sweet shop from a bygone era with jars full of nostalgia – pear drops, rosy apples, wine gums, sherbet lemons and Spangles. We remained in the past trying it neat - sitting on the wooden-panelled deck of a luxury liner as we harkened back to the golden age of ocean travel sipping vintage champagne. After adding a drop of water, whilst we dusted of an old Victorian dress, we came across an old leather-bound album of yellow-faded photographs. An experience not to be missed – truly history in a glass!

About The Vaults Collection:

The Vaults Collection is a selection of the finest and rarest single cask, single malt whisky, set aside from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s most remarkable stocks over the years. They have been released from the depths of our treasure trove of casks, after decades of slow maturation and careful nurturing. The Vaults Collection represents the whisky lover’s dream: chance to journey back into whisky history, including the opportunity to experience styles or distilleries that no longer exist. The Collection takes its name from the Society’s historical home at The Vaults in Leith, Scotland’s oldest commercial building in continuous use whose connection with the drinks world dates back to the 12th century. Each bottle has a specially designed label and is offered in a beautiful wooden box.
