Dunglass Lowland Whisky Distillery
Dunglass is for the collector and wealthy only this malt was an experiment at the now defunct Littlemill distillery in West Dunbartonshire the south of Scotland. Littlemill was originally a brewery which was converted to a distillery in 1772 and is rumoured to have been illicitly producing Scotch whisky for centuries before acquiring a license in the 1820’s. If the rumours are true it would have been one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. Littlemill changed hands a number of times during the 19th century having owners including Jane McGregor (one of few female distillers at the time), William Hay and Duncan Thomas. The distillery which created Dunglass is no sadly no more after difficult times on the 1980’s and 1990’s before ceasing completely in 1994. After demolition and fire there is no sign of Littlemill in West Dunbartonshire anymore contributing to demand for Dunglass, Littlemill and Dumbuck, the 3 single malt whiskies which were made there.
As typical of the lowlands of Scotland whisky production involved triple distillation however this was changed later in the 1930’s to double. The malts produced here will not last long so if you have deep pockets you should buy one now.
Taste: Due to rarity of this Dunglass whisky we do not know, if you know someone who has tasted it let us know. We are informed it was peated but cannot help apart from that.
