Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
Glenlossie distillery has been founded in 1876 by John Duff, in
those days director of Glendronach and
owner of an hotel in Lhanbryde. The distillery has been build with
the help of two of his friends, Alexander Grigor Allen and H.M.S.
John Duff remained owner of the distillery up to 1896, when Alexander Grigor Allen died. John Duff just founded Longmorn and was actively thinking about the creation of Benriach.
When John Duff left the distillery, H.M.S MacKay renamed it in "Glenlossie-Glenlivet", and built railway section to the station of Longmorn.
In 1919, the distillery has been bought by the D.C.L. (Distillers Company Ltd.).
It has been destroyed in a fire in 1929 and rebuild.
Like many other distilleries, the Glenlossie distillery has been closed during the two world wars, because of a lack of barley.
Glenlossie has been enlarged in 1962, and the number of stills went from 4 to 6.
Between 1968 and 1971, the Glenlossie build a distillery waste reprocessing plant to produce cattle food.
A new distillery has been build besides Glenlossie in 1971: Mannochmore.
Its single malt is rarely bottled (only 0,5% of the production is marketed as single malt), and is to find at independent bottlers or in the UDV official collection "Fauna & Flora".
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.
