Glen Scotia Distillery

Glen Scotia is one of the smallest Scotch whisky distilleries in Scotland yet one of the big names of Campbeltown. Our wonderful distillery still preserves much of its original layout, consisting of the mash tun, the stillroom as well as the dunnage warehouse dating from the 1830s. The last century saw rough times for the whisky distilleries of Campbeltown, yet our tradition withstands.

 

Rich in initial functions and equipment, Glen Scotia is an expressive and unique place to function, as well as browse through. We work hard to preserve the distillery's historical structures and also work with care as well as pride and also love revealing visitors around.

 

To this particular day, we're following in the footsteps of our founders, distilling whisky utilizing conventional methods, carefully creating the one-of-a-kind Campbeltown maritime style we've become world well-known for.

 

But we make greater than whisky at Glen Scotia. In the yard you'll locate two hives, where our resident bees create their tasty honey.

 

Glen Scotia has constantly created two designs of whisky-- peated and non peated. Usually our peated whisky is transformed for a duration of 6 weeks annually.

 

For many years the high quality of our whisky has grown, with longer fermentation and vatting of the malted barley, in addition to a slower as well as much more cautious distillation. However in general the process has actually continued to be the very same. Although we no longer malt our very own barley, we purchase in Scottish malted barley to our specific specification in order to maintain real Glen Scotia personality with our distilling procedure. We would certainly like to invite you to Glen Scotia.

 

Campbeltown is a really special place in Scotland, described as 'the centre of deep space' by some of its current residents. With a wealth of abundant farmland, local barley, peat and also fresh water, it was virtually inevitable it would certainly come to be an important part of the background of whisky distilling.

 

Distilling on the Kintyre peninsula goes back to 1609 with the providing of the initial permit to generate 'aqua vitae'. In the Victorian age, Campbeltown was known as the whisky funding of the world-- one of the five distinct malt producing areas of Scotland, particularly Highland, Speyside, Lowland and Islay as well as, certainly, Campbeltown. Glen Scotia is a great example of this historical region.
