A SINGLE malt from a defunct distillery thought to have been the oldest in Scotland has gone on sale to connoisseurs and collectors.

Littlemill distillery was officially established at Bowling on the Clyde in 1772. It closed in 1994 and was destroyed by fire in 2004.

Littlemill 2017 Private Cellar Edition is the second in a series of expressions celebrating the very limited amount of Littlemill single malt that remains. The latest release is of 500 numbered limited edition bottles of the 27-year-old whisky priced at £2250 each.
