Glen Scotia distillery was created in 1832 by the Galbraith family. It's one of the last distilleries with Springbank remaining in Campeltown.

It is told that Glen Scotia distillery is hanted. Duncan MacCallum's ghost, an ancien owner, killed himself in december 23rd 1930 drowning in the Crosshill's Loch. At the end of the 20th century, the distillery closed several times and the activity has sporadic. The distillery was bought byLoch Lomond. With a new fresh style Glen Scotia whisky is splendide.

The distillery was rewarded with several flattering reviews, like James Darwen's four stars in the whisky guide.  Important dates : the distillery was founded in 1832 by the Balbraith family, it is sold at the "West Highland Malt Distillers" in 1919 but bankrupts in 1924 and the distillery passes under Duncan MacCallum's supervision. In 1928, it closes after Duncan MacCallam's suicide in december 23rd 1930.

The Glen Scotia whisky production starts again in 1933. In 1954, the distillery is bought by the company Hiram Walker, who sells it then to A.Gillies and Co a year later. In 1970, Glen Scotia belongs to "Amagamated Distillers Products" after A.Gillies and Co absorption. Gen Scotia closes in 1984 before oppening again in 1989 when the company is bought by "Gibson International". The production stops again in 1994 when the distillery was taken by Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouse Ltd. In 2000, Loch Lomond distillery places his workers at Glen Scotia and got the activity back on track.

Nose: broad and medium-weight with citrus peels, ginger snap biscuits. Sweet and with great depth. Apricot aromas develop then drift towards fruit salad. After a short time the wood come to the fore and water helps to release baked fruit.

Palate: a complicated palate where the initial nose would lead you to expect plump fruits, what you get is a surprisingly dry element. The palate fleshes out as the first impact of the nose fades. Adding water brings out the caramelised elements balanced with the wood elements expected of a 15 year-old.

Finish: firm and slightly dry.
