One of Scotland’s more obscure distilleries, Glenlossie is part of Diageo’s stable of workhorse Speysiders. Founded in 1876, Glenlossie joined Diageo forerunner DCL’s portfolio in 1919 and now has six stills and a theoretical production capacity of just under 4 million litres per year. The Mannochmore distillery was built adjacent to Glenlossie in 1971.

Glenlossie’s crucial importance to the Haig and Dimple blended Scotch whisky brands has meant that the distillery has never been deemed worth marketing as a single malt in its own right, with the only regular distillery bottling being the Flora & Fauna 10-year-old first released in 1991. Independent bottlings of Glenlossie are relatively common, with recent highlights including 1975 vintage bottlings from The Whisky Agency, Cadenhead’s and Gordon & MacPhail and 1997 casks by Signatory Vintage, Jack Weiber and The Maltman among others.

Distillery bottlings are, as the name suggests, bottled by or for the distillery from which the whisky has originated and are thus often referred to as Official Bottlings or OBs. Distillery bottlings are generally more desirable for collectors and usually fetch higher prices at auction than independent bottlings. They are officially-endorsed versions of the whisky from a particular distillery and are therefore considered the truest expression of the distillery’s character.

This ideal of the distillery character is regarded so seriously by the distilleries and brand owners that casks of whisky that are considered to vary too far from the archetype are frequently sold on to whisky brokers and independent bottlers. When this happens, it is often with the proviso that the distillery’s name is not allowed to be used when the cask is bottled for fear of diminishing or damaging the distillery’s character and status.


Although a condition report is normally included in the Lot description, we do recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the form below "Ask A Question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise, Lots will be sold as seen and described.
Please note: due to the various ages of bottles, corks and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion. And no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.All bottles are checked by our whisky specialists Wayne & Harrison Ormerod prior to any auction. We do not auction opened bottles so therefore all items are sealed unless stated under certain circumstances where seals were never issued by the producer.
No item is deemed new, however many items are generally in good condition. When this is not the case, we aim to mention any faults in the description. The images supplied are of the actual item you will receive. If the filling level of the liquid is not visible in the images provided, we aim to indicate the current position in the description. If the filling level is impossible to determine, such as with ceramics decanters, we will provide an overall weight of the decanter in KG. Our filling level guideline can be found here.
All information in this listing is provided to the best of our knowledge including when we chose to date the age of a bottle. If you are unhappy with the listing or believe there is an error/discrepancy, you should notify us immediately and we will address the Lot accordingly. Placing a bid confirms you have checked the Lot and are satisfied.
