Description

The favourite whisky of Captain Haddock (of Tintin fame) is distilled on the bonny bonny banks of Glasgow’s local beach resort.  A fire at the distillery in 2000 caused so much whisky to leak into the River Leven that firemen tackling the blaze found themselves pumping cask-strength spirit back onto the flames. Just a few yards over the ‘Highland Line’ that divides Lowland from Highland malts (and carrying characteristics of both styles), the distillery itself is testament to the legacy of post-war industrial Scotland:  founded in 1965 on the site of a disused dye factory in the heart of industrial Dunbartonshire, today it is the only distillery that produces both malt and grain whisky at the same site.
