About the distillery

Distillery

Glen Scotia

Glen Scotia is a whisky distillery located in Campbeltown, Scotland. It was founded in 1832 and has been producing whisky for almost two centuries. The distillery produces single malt Scotch whisky using traditional methods and has a production capacity of 750,000 litres per year. The distillery is known for its distinctive maritime style, which is attributed to its location on the west coast of Scotland, near the Atlantic Ocean. This unique character is reflected in the flavour of its whiskies, which often have notes of sea salt, brine, and seaweed. Glen Scotia is one of only three distilleries remaining in Campbeltown, which was once a thriving whisky-producing region. At its peak in the 19th century, the town was home to more than 30 distilleries, but economic downturns and changing tastes led to the closure of most of them. Today, Glen Scotia is a rare example of a traditional Campbeltown distillery.
