Rosebank Distillery reopens with oldest whisky to date

10 June, 2024

The Rosebank Distillery has now opened its doors after more than 30 years of closure. 

Ian Macleod Distillers restored the site, spanning the last four years, which now includes a visitor experience for guests. 

Stuart Hendry, brand homes director at Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “This is a huge moment for the people of Falkirk and the global whisky community. It has been an absolute pleasure watching Rosebank reawaken, with its original distillation methods now sitting at the heart of inspiring new buildings that respect the original setting.” 

To mark the occasion, Rosebank has released its first distillery exclusive, and its oldest expression to date, Rosebank Vintage 1989. The 33 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky, bottled at its natural strength of 47.5% abv, is from the oldest year of the legacy stock. 

The new expression is limited to 650 bottles, and only available to buy from the distillery gift shop, for an rrp of £3,200. Distillery manager Malcolm Rennie will also be on-site signing bottles after purchase.
