Closed Distilleries

Unfortunately distilleries have had to shut at various times but often their whiskies live on a lot longer than the building that created them. Here we have gathered together all the whiskies that really are the last of their kind; whiskies that cannot be replaced. If you are looking for a special treat for a good friend or something to take pride of place on your shelf then this is a great start point.
