Glen Scotia Scotch Whisky Distillery

Glen Scotia Scotch Whisky Distillery

Planet Whiskies visited Glen Scotia in June 2018 and were very impressed by the distillery and shop. It was a pleasure taking to Callum Frazer who is the Shop and Tour Manager for Loch Lomond Group Glen Scotia Distillery. His knowledge of the whisky industry down in Campbeltown was excellent as has been working with whisky for around 20 years.

While we were talking to Callum, he showed us one of the expensive bottles that he has in stock at the moment from the now destroyed Littlemill Distillery. It was a 27-Year-Old malt and limited to just 500 bottles. To buy it on the day would cost around £2,250, but over time we would say this bottle will gain in value and be a real collectors' item. It was interesting to find out that Loch Lomond Group has all the spirit that is left from Littlemill after the fire destroyed it in 2004 as this was one fact that we did not know. This is why we love the whisky industry and every day can be a school day as there are so many facts out there just waiting to be found out. The actual Littlemill distillery closed its door for the final time in 1997, and the Littlemill distillery in Bowling West Dunbartonshire was no more. It was during this period Loch Lomond Group took away all it's whisky after they purchased the distillery in 1984 from Argyll Group.

Littlemill 27 year old

Well that enough about Littlemill and back at the Glen Scotia distillery, the shop is small but perfect in every way. It's selling the distillery key range which is essential these days as some distillery tend to produce other whisky and forget about the crucial key brands. The whole feeling regarding the shop was just lovely.

Now to the critical part of the tour was when Callum gives us a try of the malts that were on show. It was only 11 am in the morning, but the Glen Scotia Double Cask went down a treat and was Rich & Spicy throughout. Always find it important to try before you buy so you can have that special feeling inside when you have a dram that you enjoy. Just while wondering about Glen Scotia you feel the history around the place and the massive input it brings to the local community of Campbeltown. The whole place was very welcoming and after leaving it brought a smile to our faces because of the way we were treated.
