Description

Licensed in 1826, it had already been producing spirit illegally for many years by that time - according to the legend, it was founded by Magnus Eunson, a church officer and notorious smuggler.  It remained in family ownership until, in 1869, inheritor James Borwick came to feel that being a priest and a distiller were incompatible:  he opted to remain a priest, and the distillery was sold off.

Limited edition bottling only available to staff of the Royal Navy Submarine Service. One of 1500 bottles.

N.B. - Please note the condition of the labels and packaging and also the fill levels of any bottle before bidding.
