The Distillery

The Ladyburn distillery has been created in 1966 by William Grant & Sons (owners of Glenfiddich and The Balvenie) to ensure the production of single malt for the needs of the blend business of the company.
Two years earlier, William Grant started the production of grain whisky (for the same purpose) in the industrial complex Girvan in the Lowlands. The Girvan grain distillery is still active and produces grain whisky for the Grants brand, the blended whisky of the group.
The malt distillery Ladyburn had a very short life, as it only produced for 9 years, between 1966 and 1975, when it closed definitely.
Recent economic developments in the world of grain alcohols inspired the alteration of Ladyburn into a vodka distillery, and Ladyburn produces the Richard Branson's Vodka "Virgin Vodka".
Ladyburn whisky is very rare, greatly because of the very short production period. Further, Ladyburn was not really marketed as a single malt, even if some rumours say that the group has kept about 30 casks in order to bottle them one by one in the coming years.
Divers independent bottlers sell Ladyburn under the name "Ayrshire".

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.
