Silent Distilleries

Silent distilleries are distilleries that are no longer in operation. Some may have been mothballed (closed for a period of time due to financial constraints) while others may have been demolished completely. Either way it means the whiskies produced from these distilleries are in short supply and high demand!

With the rise of whisky consumerism, more people are keen to try long lost / forgotten bottlings, to taste a literal piece of history. Also as stocks of these whiskies diminish, the value of the remaining stock can increase in value, meaning silent distillery bottlings are also extremely collectable and a must for any serious whisky collector.
