Glenlochy Highland Whisky Distillery
Established in 1898 on North Road, Inverlochy, Near Fort William by one David McAndie under the banner of the Glenlochy-FortWilliam Distillery Co. This distillery was set up at the start of the whisky boom and managed to survive for some years there after.
Silent from 1919 to 1924 and again from 1926 to 1937 the distillery had quite a few different owners but never really reached sound profitability. By 1953 it became the property of the mighty D.C.L. and even with their efforts the distillery failed.
This Single Malt Whisky Distillery finally closed in 1968 and most of the buildings were demolished in 1986. By dint of fate this has made Glenlochy single malt whisky one of the rarest malts in the world.
The best is a 49 year old example by Douglas Laing but expect to pay a very high price for this rarest of malts.
Taste: Sweet and Polished with hints of Sherry.
