JOHN PETERSON WHO HAS BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY FOR OVER 40 YEARS HAS BEEN THE
MASTERMIND BEHIND THE CAREFUL DEVELOPMENT OF THE SINGLE

“AFTER 40 YEARS IN THE BUSINESS, MY PASSION FOR
CREATING GREAT WHISKY IS AS STRONG AS EVER”
PRODUCTION DIRECTOR & MASTER DISTILLER
It is with John's guidance and expertise that the three new malts of Glen Scotia have been developed. Designed to reflect the originality of Campbeltown whisky styles, Double Cask and 15 Year Old are designed to reflect the originality of Campbeltown whisky styles, whilst the Victoriana expression demonstrates the unique, gently peaty style that is Glen Scotia. John will continue to develop further new expressions of Glen Scotia that will stay true to their roots in the early days of Campbeltown Scotch whisky.
In 2015, we opened our new Visitor’s Centre at the distillery. It is a beautiful room, dedicated to the enjoyment of our very special whiskies. Using traditional materials form the region including local stone, wood and specially commissioned Glen Scotia tweed, there can be no finer place to enjoy our whisky at its best - at its home.
Please join us here for a dram or two, and savour the many different flavours of Glen Scotia Single Malt Scotch Whisky. There is also a very well stocked shop where you can purchase a bottle of one, or all of your favourites.
Our distillery is managed by Iain McAlister, who hails from Campbeltown. Iain has worked at the distillery for over 9 years and is very hands on in the day to day production of the Glen Scotia spirit. Managing a small team of only 7 the distillery is continually increasing production with Iain on hand to ensure we maintain the highest quality new make spirt coming off the stills.
