This limited edition blend of single malt and grain whiskies was bottled in October 2007 to commemorate the 150-year anniversary of the distillery founded by John and William Hardie.

Described as "sweet and mellow with a hint of citrus" The Antiquary 1977 is a blend of predominantly Speyside malts and is based on the original Hardie Brother recipe. The traditional bottle shape and old-fashioned labelling has been chosen to "accentuate and pay homage to the brand's heritage".

The bottling has been limited to just 1,148.

Distribution worldwide is being handled by Harvey-Miller Wine & Spirits Agencies.
