The Singleton Glendullan 40 Year Old is the first release from the distillery’s Forgotten Drop Series, which will include limited edition whiskies drawn from reserves uncovered by The Singleton’s Master of Malts Maureen Robinson.


The rare spirit is the oldest liquid ever released from the Speyside distillery since its founding in 189. The special limited release of only 600 bottles is available exclusive to Travel Retail outlets in Changi and Taiwan.

“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.”

Master of Malts for The Singleton

The distillery, with its large, uniquely shaped stills and light distillation technique creates an incredibly fresh and delicate spirit, resulting in 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, commented: “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.
