Port Ellen Whiskey

One of the rarest whiskies ever produced – the Port Ellen 12 Year old Queen’s Visit 1980 – has been sold for a record-breaking £50,000 hammer price in an online auction held by Perth-based Whisky Auctioneer.
An extremely rare malt whisky from what was until recently a closed distillery, the bottling is said to be the only official bottling of Port Ellen issued while the distillery was active.

The spirit was packaged to mark a visit by Queen Elizabeth II on 9 August 1980 and while exact numbers are not known it is believed just 40 were produced for the sovereign and her senior staff present that day.
In terms of taste, it has the reputation of being a truly outstanding dram. Indeed, this is the only whisky to score a near-perfect 99/100 on Whiskyfun – the highest rating Serge Valentin has ever awarded.
The bottle attracted a lot of global interest, particularly from Europe and Asia, with over 50 bids being lodged and the eventual winner from Hong Kong.
