The Distillery

The Scapa distillery has been founded by John Townsend and MacFarlane, distillers from Glasgow, and is settled on the banks of the famous "Scapa Flow". Townsend was also famous in the Speyside area.
During World War I, the distillery barely avoided a fire thanks to the intervention of sailors of the Royal Navy. The distillery was used as an ammunition for the british army.
The distillery was sold to the Bloch brothers, owners of Glen Scotia in Campbeltown in 1936.
In 1954 Hiram Walker bought the distillery and he added amongst other things a Lomond still.
Owned by Allied Distillers, the Scapa distillery is mothballed since 1994.
A major part of the production is used in the Teacher's and Ballantine's blends.
The Scapa distillery is under control of Pernod-Ricard since the French Company purchased the activities of Allied Domecq in 2005.

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.
