Bruichladdich 1968 Sherry Wood 15 Year Old / Moon Import

Moon Import was founded by Pepi Mongiardino in 1980. Heeding the advice of the late, great, Silvano Samaroli, he opted to be "free from the big companies," and became the official distributor for Islay's Bruichladdich, and later Tamnavulin and Tullibardine, preferring however to procure casks from private owners. Mongiardino bottled his first whisky in 1982, titled the Half Moon series. Always beautifully labelled, Pepi is acclaimed for designing the packaging for Moon Import bottles himself, often using images found in old books. These iconic designs, coupled with the quality of the liquid saw Moon Import steadily grow in popularity, and with the help of Intertrade founder, Nadi Fiori, they exported their first bottles to Japan in 2001. Moon Import now occupies an important place in the pantheon of historic whisky greats, and we are delighted to bring this unrivalled collection to market in this exclusive auction.

This was officially bottled, exclusively for Mongiardino. He became the Bruichladdich distributor in the early 1980s, and imported their whisky for 5 years before selling the contract to Rinaldi.

This 15 year old was distilled in 1968 and bottled from sherry wood in 1983.

One of 2400 bottles.
