Orphan Barrel Launches 24YO Scotch from Ghost Distillery Port Dundas

Orphan Barrel Muckety-Muck Scotch Whisky.

Diageo’s Orphan Barrel Whisky Co. has announced the launch of Muckety-Muck 24 Year Old Single Grain Scotch Whisky from the Port Dundas Distillery.

Muckety-Muck is the latest addition to the Orphan Barrel line of rare whiskies, and the first single grain Scotch whisky in the highly collected series.

Established in 1810, Port Dundas distillery closed its doors a decade ago. The distillery was once a local landmark overlooking the city of Glasgow, and is known for its core expressions: Port Dundas 12 Year Old and Port Dundas 18 Year Old.

Port Dundas was also home to a piggery during the distillery’s most successful years. Hundreds of pigs reportedly fed on distillery draff, with the prized pig Muckety-Muck a local attraction for his decorated wall of medals in the breeding shed, the company says.

Muckety-Muck 24 Year Old Single Grain Scotch Whisky from the Port Dundas Distillery is a tribute to this pig, and Port Dundas’ prosperous period as an operating distillery.

Six variations of the bottle label are available, with Muckety-Muck wearing a Scottish tartan sash in either red, green, blue, gray, yellow or orange.

Muckety-Muck 24 Year Old is a single grain Scotch whisky offering crisp fruit and light toasted oak flavors with a butterscotch vanilla finish, the company reports. Following Orphan Barrel Forager’s Keep Single Malt Scotch Whisky released in 2019, Muckety-Muck is the second Scotch whisky in the collection.

This limited-edition bottle is available at retailers nationwide with an SRP of $225 for a 750-ml. bottle.
