Glen Albyn (Albyn or Albion is an old name for Scotland) started production in 1844. The distillery was situated beside Caledonian Canal, opposite Glen Mhor Distillery. Both distilleries were operated under ownership of Mackinlay & Birnie Ltd from 1920 until 1972, when the company was acquired by DCL. The majority of Glen Albyn malt went into Mackinlay’s blends, the only official single malt bottling turned up in 2002 as part of Rare Malts range. The distillery ceased operations in 1983 and Gordon & MacPhail expression from 2012, part of Rare Vintage range, might be one of the final releases of this whisky. The whisky distilled in 1976 was aged in refill sherry butts.
