The Port Ellen is no longer there and that's a fact gentlemen. I love the Port Ellen too as much as you do. but it has now become a legend, why destroy a legend like the Port Ellen?
What do you think?
Will it be back?
Do you want it back?
Can it be done?
I think that questions like these, are the beginning of a discussion wich will never end. Otherwise we may start a discussion about the other lost distilleries too on Islay, such as Bridgend, Port Charlotte, Octomore, Ballygrant etc.
Lets keep it that way, that the Port Ellen is about to finish its last stock, and lets enjoy that, becaus if you look at the prices, there's a Port Ellen for every one of us. If the Port Ellen should be brought back to life, then why nobody ever did this in the eighties, while the "wounds" where still fresh, and able to heal again.
Let the past to be the past, and never the future......
