Speyburn 10 Year Old from 1990s in Presentation Tin with Finest Smoked Salmon Advert (70cl, 40%)
With its Presentation Tin advertising Finest Scottish Oak Smoked Salmon lightly marinated in Speyburn 10 year old comes from 1990s. 10 year old expression was the sole permanent release for a long time, before the distillery's core range portfolio was expanded in the 2000s.
Speyburn distillery was built by John Hopkin & Co at the end of the 19th century, eventually passing into the hands of DCL (now Diageo) in 1916. With the exception of a 4 year silence in the 1930s, they operated the distillery until 1991 when it was sold to current owners, Inver House. Aside from the short-lived and rare Flora & Fauna release, there are no distillery bottlings of its single malt from the United Distillers era or earlier, and it was not until Inver House acquired it that its single malt brand was launched. Predominantly sold in the US, it is still something of a rarity (despite its sales volume).
