Our Legends Whisky

Littlemill Distillery

Aged 30 Years Old

Lost to the flames, the now demolished Littlemill Distillery is quite possibly the oldest malt whisky distillery in Scotland with roots going as far back as 1750. This truly brings new meaning to the phrase Limited Edition.
Distilled November 1988 – Bottled March 2019.

Matured in a Sherry Oak Butt from Jerez.

Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring

Heather honey, vanilla, custard, banana and summer fruits. Sweet and slightly spicy on the palate. Smooth with a long lasting warming finish. Dark chocolates and treacle. Tangerines with cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Total yield from cask – 100 bottles

Macallan Distillery

Aged 29 Years Old

The Macallan is consistently voted number one in the league table of single malts sold at auction. Famous the world over, it’s richness is enhanced by the use of small stills and the distiller’s own Golden Promise barley. The Macallan remains the malt against which all others are judged.

Matured in an Oloroso Sherry Oak Butt from Jerez.

Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring

Rich fruity nose with a hint of banana and butterscotch. Full bodied sweet Spanish sherry with sultanas and raisins very much to the front. The finish is long and smooth with a hint of orange and nutmeg.Elegant and complex, this is a malt with loads going on and will not disappoint.

Total yield from cask – 126 bottles

Laphroaig Distillery

Aged 28 Years Old

Laphroaig, which in Gaelic means ‘The beautiful hollow by the broad bay’ is situated on the Southern shores of Islay and is recognised by aficionados as having the Marmite factor. You either love it or hate it.
There is no other malt whisky quite as distinctive as Laphroaig.
Distilled April 1990 – Bottled May 2018

Matured in a First Fill American Bourbon Cask.

Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring

This expression has all the usual suspects: Medicinal, surgical gauze, smoked kipper, brine and new laid asphalt. Pair with freshly landed oysters. Fantastic!

Total yield from cask – 218 bottles

Highland Park Distillery

Aged 36 Years Old

Scotland’s most northerly distillery, its origins date from the late 18 th when it was an illicit still. The original owner was allegedly assisted in evading the exciseman by a church elder who hid the contraband under the church pulpit.

Highland park does not take its name from the Highland region of Scotland but rather from the rise of hills above Kirkwall that were known as High Park. Prior to 1876 it was known as the Kirkwall Distillery.

Distilled November 1977 – Bottled March 2014

Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring

The house style is described as smoky but this is not the case with this expression. Rather heather honey, vanilla, custard and banana.

Total yield from cask – 87 bottles

Glenfiddich Distillery

Aged 50 Years Old

Glenfiddich Distillery was founded in 1887 by the Grant family and is still owned by the fifth generation of the original family. The name is taken from the Glen Fiddich valley where the distillery is situated and means ‘Valley of the Deer’ in Gaelic, the origins of the company’s stag emblem. On Christmas day in 1887 the first whisky ran from it’s stills.
The second Legends release must surely be the last of the Mohicans.

Distilled September 1964 – Bottled October 2014

Matured in a First Fill Sherry Cask.

Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring

Having been matured in a sherry cask for 50 years it is not surprising that the first impact is of a rich predominance of cream sherry and chocolate. Black treacle and raisins are also evident.

Total yield from cask – 67 bottles

Our Whisky Archives

The unique and alluring nature of Single Cask releases means we cannot bring you the same delightful elixirs again and again – once the whisky is gone, it’s gone for good. The expressions live as a fragment of the past, never to be repeated.

We invite you to delve into our whisky archives. Explore past releases and bask in amber nostalgia, accompanied with distillery history and tasting notes from Mr. Hart himself.


The Hart Brothers Archive »

Our Story

Hart Brothers can trace their origins in the licensed trade back to the late 19th century when the family were licensed victuallers and publicans in Paisley, the mill town on the outskirts of Glasgow. It was not until 1964 that brothers Iain & Donald Hart incorporated the company as Wine & Spirit Wholesalers and Scotch Whisky Blenders.

Alistair Hart joined the company in 1975 and it was his responsibility as chief blender to source vintage casks of single malt whisky that were not readily available through any specialist whisky shop or online whisky site. Today, we continue to secure special and rare malt and grain whiskies that are further matured and only selected for single cask bottling after careful tasting and consideration.

We always pride ourselves on continuing the spirit of excellence by offering some of the finest single malt scotch whisky available through our selected distributors overseas.

We make sure our customers can best share with us the single malt scotch whisky experience which is why we add nothing to the malt whisky other than the purest water. Today, we pride ourselves on continuing the spirit of excellence by offering some of the finest single malt scotch whisky available through our selected distributors overseas.
