Twin whiskies mark a historic return
After being closed for over 40 years, Port Ellen makes an iconic return with a legendary new release. Port Ellen Gemini is a set of two uniquely extraordinary bottles, a testament to the distillery's rich past and portentous future.
“Marking the return of this iconic distillery, and a new light in its future, Port Ellen Gemini is true taste of a legend reborn – a never before seen release of two unique and priceless expressions of a much-revered whisky, inspired by our rarest cask.”Dr. Craig Wilson, Master Blender
Two bottles. Two journeys.
The 44-Year-Old whisky was drawn from three exceptional 1978 European Oak casks, specifically selected long ago for this new experiment. The whisky was then split into two bottles which took diverging paths of maturation; Port Ellen Gemini Original and Port Ellen Gemini Remnant.Learn more
Port Ellen Gemini Original: honouring characterful Islay smoke
Port Ellen Gemini Original is an exquisite whisky matured in reserve European Oak butts, longer than any previous release from this cult icon, and left in its original splendour. Whisky expert Charles Maclean says that "the expression has classic Port Ellen character and its surprisingly high strength for its age lends vitality to both aroma and taste.”Learn more
Port Ellen Gemini Remnant: a finish that sets new life in motion
Port Ellen Gemini Remnant, the second of these twin whiskies, embarked on a world-first maturation journey within the Port Ellen remnant cask. Whisky expert Charles Maclean says that “further maturation has markedly increased the flavour profile of this uniquely finished expression.”Learn more
