Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
buildings of the distillery were previously used by a cotton plant
since 1785. The cotton plant closed in the early 1960's and the
first production of the new distillery started in october 1966.
The characteristics of the building made the plant ideal for a distillery. The warehouses of the factory were build in order to ensure a constant temperature.
Further, the situation on the banks of the river Teith was ideal for whisky production. The distillery was built by the Deanston Distillery Co. company, but has been taken over by Invergordon in 1972. The distillery closed in 1982 before acquisition by Burn Stewart who resumed the production.
Burn Stewart has been bought by a company based in Trinidad, CL Financial Ltd, who owns Angostura amongst other spirit brands. Other distilleries belonging to Burn Stewart are, Tobermory et Bunnahabhain.
About 15% of the production is marketed as single malt, the remaining being used in blends, among others Scottish Leade, Black Prince and in the Wallas liquor.
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.
