Port Ellen is the lost jewel of the Islay crown. Since its
closure in 1983 the distillery has developed a legendary
mystique amongst collectors and connoisseurs alike.
As stocks get thinner on the ground, desirability
is sky-rocketing. Originally a malt mill built in
1825, it was later converted to a distillery in 1833.
Production flowed until 1929 before it was closed
for almost forty years. In 1966 the distillery resumed
production until its final closure in 1983. In 2017
Diageo revealed its intention to reopen Port Ellen
distillery with an expected opening date in 2021.
