Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
Glen Albyn distillery has been founded in 1844 by the Mayor of
Inverness, James Sutherland. A fire destroyed the distillery 3
years after its creation. The distillery was rebuild in 1884 ad
bought in 1920 by the blenders group Mackinley and Birnie. Later
it became property of DCL (Distillers Company Limited) which closed
it definitively in 1983 and demolished it in 1986.
Currently, a supermarket is settled on the site.
The distillery has been requisitioned by the US army during World War II to become a mine factory.
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.
