Girvan


Girvan Distillery
Grangestone Industiral Estate
Girvan Ayrshire KA26 9PT

Owner: William Grant & Sons

Creation year 1963


The Girvan distillery was built in 9 months in 1963, probably as a result of a dispute with Distillers Company Limited (DCL), which decided not to hand over grain whisky to William Grant's family anymore. Since then, Girvan is the distillery that supplies grain whisky for the Grant family's  (Glenfiddich) blends  and it's possible that the grain whisky supply crisis has pushed Glenfiddich to promote its pure malt. Remember that Glenfiddich was the first to popularize malt whiskys at a time when the blend was king.
