Rosebank 30 Year Old: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
This is a very special moment for all of us who have been involved in the Rosebank Renaissance. Rosebank 30 Year Old Release One is our first global release and it’s an incredible expression that we’re honoured to share with you. After selling out of the very first bottles of this whisky initially available online almost immediately, Rosebank 30 Year Old will be available to buy again from Rosebank.com from today.
This is a whisky you won’t want to miss out on. It’s the oldest Rosebank ever released; distilled by the great whisky makers who ensured that the whisky was known as ‘The King of the Lowlands’. In that respect it serves both as an important reminder of Rosebank’s wonderful history and as the north star for the quality level we aim to continue producing.
As the custodians of the famous Rosebank name, we realise that we are standing on the shoulders of giants. Giants whose work we continue to learn from and be inspired by every single day.
For 26 years, the famous Rosebank distillery lay dormant, a place where they had put their heart and soul into whisky making. The once beloved single malt was all but relegated to the history books… until we, at Ian Macleod Distillers, began the revival. We can show our respect for the great people who came before us by keeping their dream alive through the restoration of the Rosebank distillery.
Resurrecting Rosebank has been no easy feat but, since acquiring the distillery in 2017, we’ve been working tirelessly to do so.
This includes building a modern distillery, set to open in 2022, where we’ll employ the same unique production techniques for which Rosebank has always been famed: marrying triple distillation and worm tub condensers.
That will allow us to create the revered classic Rosebank style that you can enjoy in our limited edition 30 Year Old release. Light, floral and delectably delicate.
