    ​A Phoenix from the Ashes: Littlemill 2017 Private Cellar Edition

    By Joseph Pettigrew 2 years ago

    The latest release from the lost distillery of Littlemill arrives at The Whisky Shop

    Officially founded by George Buchan of Glasgow in 1772, on the site of a former brewery in Bowling on the banks of the River Clyde, Littlemill was the oldest distillery in Scotland. Despite its provenance as an elder of the industry, Littlemill had a chequered past, being mothballed twice in its lifetime before eventually silencing its stills for good in 1994 when its owners went bankrupt. The grand dame of distilling was then purchased by the Loch Lomond Group, owners of Loch Lomond and Glen Scotia distilleries, but hope of a revival did not last with the remnants of the distillery being dismantled in 1997 and finally, in 2004, a fire ravaged the remainder of the buildings, bringing Littlemill distillery’s story to an end.
