Diageo’s Orphan Barrel Whisky Co. has announced the launch of Muckety-Muck 24 Year Old Single Grain Scotch Whisky from the Port Dundas Distillery.
Established in 1810, Port Dundas distillery closed its doors a decade ago. The distillery was once a local landmark overlooking the city of Glasgow, and is known for its core expressions: Port Dundas 12 Year Old and Port Dundas 18 Year Old.
Port Dundas was also home to a piggery during the distillery’s most successful years. Hundreds of pigs reportedly fed on distillery draff, with the prized pig Muckety-Muck a local attraction for his decorated wall of medals in the breeding shed, the company says.
Muckety-Muck 24 Year Old Single Grain Scotch Whisky from the Port Dundas Distillery is a tribute to this pig, and Port Dundas’ prosperous period as an operating distillery.
Six variations of the bottle label are available, with Muckety-Muck wearing a Scottish tartan sash in either red, green, blue, gray, yellow or orange.
Muckety-Muck 24 Year Old is a single grain Scotch whisky offering crisp fruit and light toasted oak flavors with a butterscotch vanilla finish, the company reports. Following Orphan Barrel Forager’s Keep Single Malt Scotch Whisky released in 2019, Muckety-Muck is the second Scotch whisky in the collection.
This limited-edition bottle is available at retailers nationwide with an SRP of $225 for a 750-ml. bottle.
