Imperial is a distillery with an eventful past. Its periods of closure count as much as its periods of production. Founded in 1897, it began distilling its whisky in the summer of 1898. From 1899 to 1954, it produced only 8 years! It quickly fell into the hands of the Distillers Company Ltd, and all its production was absorbed by blends such as Teachers, Long John, Ballantine's. Closed again from 1985 to 1989 and from 1998 to 2000, it never reopened its doors. Only one official version of its malt was bottled, Imperial 15 years.
