The Distillery

Bladnoch, the most southern distillery of Scotland, was originally a farm created between 1814 and 1817 by the McClelland family. The family has been the owner of the distillery until 1871 when it was given up to the company T&A McClelland and Co who made some alterations in 1878.
The distillery has been closed often since 1930 and has been mothballed in 1993.
During the 40's, T&A McClelland became part of the Irish distiller Dunville & Co from Belfast. This company did not reopen the distillery, but sold it after World War II to Ross & Coulter who resold it to A.B. Grant who finally reopened the distillery under the name of Bladnoch Distillery Ltd in 1956.
A.B. Grant was taken over by Ian Fisher, shareholder of McGown & Cameron from Glasgow. The distillery has also belonged to Inver House Distillers Ltd between 1973 and 1983, before closing its doors again for 2 years. After this last closing, it has been acquired by Arthur Bell & Sons who modernised the distillery. The group became part of Guinness who acquired the D.C. L. group one year later to become the distillery branch called "United Distillers & Vintners".
UDV closed the distillery in 1993, together with Balmenach, Rosebank et Pittyvaich.
Raymond Armstrong, an Irish businessman acquired it on year later. A visitor centre and and an Internet site were opened in 1998, in the hope the distillery would reopen soon. This was the hope of lots of whisky lovers, as the malt coming from this Lowlands distillery is really outstanding.
This reopening happened in 2000.
However, the production is confidential at the moment, limited at about 100.000 litres a year.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
