Ladyburn was a short-lived distillery, constructed by William Grant & Sons within their Girvan grain complex in 1966. The intention was to provide malt whisky for blending, easing some of the strain on Glenfiddich which was becoming a popular single malt at the time. A need for the Girvan grain distillery to expand meant that Ladyburn was dismantled after less than 10 years, closing on November 15th 1975. Official and independent bottlings are incredibly scarce as a result, but it is a well-regarded spirit amongst those who have been lucky to sample it.

This whisky was distilled on 13th July 1973. It was aged for 38 years in single cask #4490 and bottled in February 2012.

Blackadder International were founded in 1995 by whisky writers, Robin Tucek and John Lamond, authors of the 1987 publication, The Malt Whisky File: The Essential Guide for the Malt Whisky Connoisseur. The company has gained great affection from whisky enthusiasts for its Raw Cask series, which is deliberately drawn un-filtered from the cask so as to retain all cask sediment along with any natural oils and fats. The company is credited with a key role in the popularisation of cask strength whiskies since its inception.
