Drawing from the distillery’s rarest and most precious stocks, The Singleton Glendullan 40 Year Old from The Forgotten Drop series offers whisky connoisseurs a truly exceptional whisky experience.

The Singleton has released an exquisite treasure in the shape of a rare 40-year-old expression from the Glendullan distillery – The Singleton Glendullan 40 Year Old – exclusive to travel retail in Asia. It is the first release from the distillery’s Forgotten Drop Series, which promises to reveal some spectacular limited edition whiskies drawn from reserves uncovered by The Singleton’s Master of Malts Maureen Robinson.

This rare spirit, the oldest liquid ever released from the Speyside distillery since its founding in 1897, has been bottled at cask strength of 58.6% ABV to experience it in its purest form. The special limited release of only 600 bottles is available exclusive to Travel Retail outlets in Singapore Changi airport and Taiwan Taoyuan international airport.


Maureen Robinson, Master of Malts for The Singleton portfolio comments: “The Singleton Forgotten Drop Series is an exciting collection to curate. We have been exploring the deepest corners of our warehouse to find hidden treasures that, due to the stocks, we could never release widely. The amount of time these liquids spent maturing in this type of cask makes it so precious. It’s whisky for whisky lovers and The Singleton Glendullan 40 Year Old is a stunning liquid to launch with.”

The distillery, with its large, uniquely shaped stills and light distillation technique creates an incredibly fresh and delicate spirit. Ageing exclusively in refill American Oak casks brings subtle, honeyed hints that complement the distillery’s signature sweet vanilla and orchard fruit flavours.

The result is an outstanding and hugely rewarding expression with a sweet and spicy profile featuring hints of honey and a gingery sweetness, finishing with a spiced, lightly salted nutted oak.

Dayalan Nayager, Managing Director of Diageo Global Travel, said: “The Singleton Glendullan ‘Forgotten Drop Series’ will offer a collection of limited releases for our whisky connoisseurs in Travel Retail. We’re delighted to introduce this series and work with our Master of Malts Maureen Robinson to unveil such a rare and perfectly crafted single malt.

The Singleton Glendullan 40 year old is available now, retailing at RRSP £1,900 GBP (2,300 USD) as a Travel Retail Exclusive available Singapore Changi and Taiwan.
