Discover Tobermory’s Hidden Treasure: The 42-Year-Old Whisky

Nestled on the serene Isle of Mull stands the historic Tobermory Distillery, a bastion of Scotch whisky craftsmanship since its inception in 1798. Steeped in tradition and revered for its small-batch production methods, Tobermory is renowned for its distinctive single malts – the unpeated Tobermory and the heavily peated Ledaig. But among its illustrious offerings lies a hidden gem, a whisky so rare and precious that its discovery marks a milestone in the annals of whisky history.

Introducing the Tobermory 42-Year-Old Whisky, a testament to time, craftsmanship, and the enduring legacy of a distillery shrouded in myth and legend. Distilled in 1973, this exquisite expression emerged from the reawakening of the Tobermory Distillery, heralding a new era of excellence. With only 650 bottles ever produced, each sip of this liquid gold is a journey through the rich tapestry of Scotland’s whisky heritage.

But the story doesn’t end there. Behind every bottle lies a tale of serendipity and intrigue. Upon the acquisition of Distell by Heineken, a treasure trove of these remarkable whiskies was unearthed in the depths of Distell’s warehouse. Amongst the dusty crates and forgotten casks, 16 bottles of the Tobermory 42-Year-Old Whisky emerged, like relics from a bygone era, waiting to be rediscovered by discerning whisky aficionados.

The Art of Angus Stewart: A Tribute to Tobermory

Each bottle of the Tobermory 42-Year-Old Whisky comes adorned with a certificate bearing the name of Angus Stewart, a luminary whose artistic prowess captures the essence of Tobermory and the rugged beauty of the West of Scotland landscape. A native of Mull, Stewart’s journey from the shores of his homeland to the galleries of London is a testament to the enduring spirit of creativity and craftsmanship that defines Tobermory.

His watercolors, oils, and prints evoke the same sense of timelessness and refinement that permeates every drop of Tobermory whisky. From the cobblestone streets of Tobermory to the mist-shrouded peaks of the Highlands, Stewart’s work serves as a fitting tribute to the rich cultural heritage that inspires both artist and distiller alike.
