Orphan Barrel Is Bottling Some Of The World’s Rarest Whisky

No matter what day of the year it is, a top-shelf glass of whiskey on-the-rocks is always welcome to bring the night to a close. Orphan Barrel specializes in finding casks produced by defunct, but legendary distilleries — bringing you some of the rarest whiskey on the planet. Their latest offering is the Orphan Barrel Forager’s Keep Whisky sourced from a Scotch distiller Pittyvaich that closed its doors in 1993.

Forager’s Keep is a 26-year-old single malt whisky and the fourteenth release from Orphan Barrel. Although Pittyvaich only had an 18-year run, it closed due to restructuring and not the quality of its product. The Forager’s Keep Whisky has never been available to a wide range of people and is the first single malt scotch whisky offered by Orphan Barrel. The whisky gives off the aroma of fresh-cut apple, fruit, creamy vanilla, a hint of wood, and a touch of orange peel. And with 48% ABV, it has the power to help you unwind. The Forager’s Keep Whisky will be released this summer for $400.

Purchase: $400
