The Distillery

The foundation date on the only official version of this single malt is in fact the date of the creation of the Tonicheal distillery. The latter has been rebuild on a different site in 1871, and renamed Inchgower by the nephew of the founder of Tonicheal, Alexander Wilson. The move has been decided because of the landlord who wanted to double the price of the rent..
The distillery was considered to be a model in those days, as it had its own cooperage, its own forge and its own joinery. The workers houses aligned at the entrance of the distillery were typical too.
Inchgower has been property of the city of Buckie between 1930 and 1936, when it's been purchased by Arthur Bell & sons.
It has been modernised and enlarged in 1966 and its production capacity has been doubled.
Bell & Sons has been taken over by Guinness in 1985. Guinness, in association with Gran Metropolitan, would become UDV a few years later.
Just 1% of the production is sold as single malt, the remaining part being used in the Bell's, Johnnie Walker and White Horse blends.
