Each year on Valentine’s Day, Elixir Distillers releases a new bottling of their The Roses series, a range of single malts from the closed Rosebank distillery. Edition V, released in 2021, is a blend of whiskies distilled in 1990 and 1991 that matured in ex-Madeira casks and American oak barrels for 21 years. The Rosebank distillery in the Scottish Lowlands was founded at the end of the 18th century and changed locations several times in its turbulent history. Rosebank was once one of the most popular lowland whiskies, but in 1993 the distillery was mothballed, making bottlings of this single malt extremely rare. In 2017 Diageo sold the Rosebank brand to Ian Macleod Distillers, who plan to reopen the distillery in 2021. Only 633 bottles of Rosebank Edition V Fascination 21 Years Old have been released.
