Single Malt Scottish Whisky from the Hillside Distillery

This page refers to Scottish Single Malts from the Hillside Distillery. Hillside distillery has had many name changes over the years, and it begins it distilling life as 'Highland Esk' in 1897. The area of Scotland this distillery is situated in is Montrose which is in the Eastern Highlands of Scotland. Just two years later the distillery name was changed again to 'North Esk'.

The distillery produced whisky for a few years until World War 1 when the British Arm took charge of the for military reasons. It was silent for the next 25 years until the ownership was changed again. It was not named Hillside until 1964, and this name was present for the next 16 years or so. But in 1996 the distillery was sadly demolished. For more details about this distillery, please visit the Scottish Distillery page on this website with the letter H.

70cl / 60.10% / Distillery Bottling - A fantastic release from Hillside, aka Glenesk, as part of the Rare Malts series. Bottlings from Hillside are very hard to find in general, especially distillery bottlings such as this one, and this lives up to the rarity by also being rather good.

"70cl / 62% / Distillery Bottling - From the distillery also known as Glenesk comes this little-seen and hugely under-rated Rare Malts bottling under the Hillside moniker. A bit OTT at full strength, with a drop of water this dram reveals a hidden honeyed beauty." Read more
