Diageo has unveiled the details of nine bottles that will be part of the annual Special Releases, a tradition of the spirits colossus. The most important news is the absence of the classic releases of Port Ellen and Brora, distilleries closed in 1983 and that Diageo will reopen in 2020, as reported in this news.

Diageo announced that the Special Releases will be completed by a tenth release, that will be revealed later.
