Glen Scotia Distillery founded in 1832 is one of only three distilleries currently operating in Campbeltown.
Some say that Glen Scotia’s 20th Century misfortunes were caused by the ghost of a former proprietor, who drowned himself in Campbeltown Loch. Things look much better now, though. After change in ownership, which took place in 2014 and certain upgrades Glen Scotia is back on track and already increased production to 500 000 liters of spirit per annum. The single cask expression presented here comprises whisky distilled in 2006 and aged in ex-bourbon cask no. 482. In September 2016 the cask yielded 234 bottles at natural strength of 52.1% abv. The cask was selected by M&P, the Polish importer of Glen Scotia.
