Inverleven distillery
2 Glasgow Road
Dumbarton GB2 1ND

Owner: Pernod Ricard

Creation year: 1938

The distillery has been created in 1938 by Hiram Walker, short after he acquired Ballantine in 1936. he distillery stoppen production of single malt in 1991. 
Several distilleries shared the site: Dumbarton, Inverleven and Lomond. All of them are closed by now. 
Hiram Walker sold the distillery to Allied Distillers which would later become Allied Domecq. When Pernod Ricard acquired Allied Domecq, they also became the owner of Inverleven. The distillery is closed with no hope to reopen inthe future. Main reason herefor is that the installations are very old and difficult to modify.
