Ken Loach’s new film “The Angel’s Share” focuses on an attempt to steal rare bottles of Malt Mill single malt Scotch. The actual Malt Mill distillery was hidden away inside Islay’s Lagavulin Distillery until it closed in 1962. What may be the most precious Malt Mill artifact is now on display at Lagavulin: a sample of new make spirit from Malt Mill’s final still run. It’s been at Lagavulin all this time, handed down by each distillery manager to his successor. Georgie Crawford is the current manager, and with the interest in “The Angel’s Share”, she decided to reveal the existence of Malt Mill’s secret sample to the world.
