Enchantment is the seventh in a series of seven highly
sought-after Rosebank bottlings, released annually by Elixir
Distillers. It is a marriage of spirits distilled in both 1990
and 1991, matured in 75% American oak barrels and 25%
The casks used for the Roses series were among the last held
by an independent company. Each bottling in the series
represents a different character of Rosebank, bringing
together casks with different styles to demonstrate this lost
distillery’s wonderful diversity.
Rosebank was mothballed in 1993 and the equipment was
stolen in 2009. The spirit produced at the distillery was
triple distilled, creating a light, floral style loved by many.
Rosebank has since become a cult favourite amongst whisky
lovers and collectors.
