Whisky Made by History
Campbeltown is one of five scotch whisky regions in Scotland, alongside Highland, Islay, Lowland, and Speyside. But what sets Campbeltown apart from the rest is its compelling history.
Glen Scotia has a unique place in the story of this region.
In the Victorian age, this small region in the south of Scotland was known as the whisky capital of the world. Whisky virtually coursed through the streets of the town, in taverns and homes, and boats were queuing in the port, waiting to carry off casks. By 1835, there were over 30 distilleries running here, and ours was one of them.
Today, we stand proudly as one of only three distilleries left in the old whisky capital.
Down through the years, all that knowledge, experience, craft and whisky passion has been distilled into Glen Scotia. So, when you pour a dram of Glen Scotia, it's more than just whisky in the glass, it’s a taste of Scottish whisky heritage.
A Distillery Steeped in Tradition
The Glen Scotia distillery may be one of the smallest in Scotland, but we are certainly one of the biggest names representing the Campbeltown region.
As part of our enduring legacy, our quaint distillery still maintains much of its original design, features, and equipment. We also follow in the footsteps of our founders by distilling whisky using traditional methods - carefully creating the unique maritime style that we've become so famous for.
Led by Craftsmanship
Our Master Distiller, Iain McAlister, is a former engineer and local who is fiercely proud of our town's people and its rich whisky heritage. While developing and enhancing production here at the distillery, Iain has made sure to preserve the craftsmanship and traditional whisky making process we so value.
With Iain at the helm, we not only continue to influence and shape Glen Scotia’s distinctive house style, but we also ensure that the running of the distillery is as smooth as our whisky.
Our Single Malt Range
Glen Scotia is a champion of concentrated whisky expertise that shows off a subtle sea spray and salinity; a unity of cask finishings; and harmony of different flavours. See how our maritime style blends so well with so many other tasting notes, from sweet toffee and fudge to fruits, both fresh and dry.
We have always produced both peated and unpeated single malt scotch, with our peated whisky being made over a period of 6 weeks per year.
From our lighter Double Cask and robust Victoriana to our medium-bodied and well-balanced 15 Year Old, we have bottled single malt scotch to suit all tastes and palates.
Double Cask Single Malt Whisky
The Glen Scotia Double Cask Whisky is a wonderfully easy-drinking single malt with tastes of toffee, salted caramel, and a sweet dry sherry finish that comes from being aged in bourbon barrels before being finished in PX sherry casks.
This expression, a distillery favourite, provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruit, sea spray, and sweet vanilla oak.
15 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
An exceptional single malt whisky matured from specially selected casks - the finest oak barrels from America - this scotch delivers the true character of a 15 Year Old single malt scotch.
Discover hints of vanilla oak, interwoven with the subtle notes of sea spray and spicy aromatic fruits.
Victoriana Single Malt Whisky
Inspired by Victorian times (with a bottle to match), the Glen Scotia Victoriana is a cask strength single malt for whisky connoisseurs.
Aged in hand-selected casks chosen for their rare character and exceptional maturity, this exceptionally smooth single malt whisky is finished in deep charred oak and bottled in the traditional way - straight from the cask without filtration.
Enjoy subtle wood and vanilla flavour, enhanced by a full-bodied spicy fruit aroma with a mildly smoky aftertaste.
18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
Our 18 Year Old whisky is a luxuriously smooth scotch whisky - single malt - that starts its maturation in refill bourbon casks or refill American oak hogsheads, and is then finished for 12 months in Oloroso sherry casks, which adds perfumed floral flavours without taking away the distillery character.
Expect thick wonderfully sweet salted caramel and citrus fruits, perfectly balanced with subtle notes of sea spray and spice - and no smoke.
25 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
Our whisky that earned the title of the World's Best Whisky at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition 2021, the Glen Scotia 25 Year Old Single Malt Whisky is both complex and elegant, showing off a natural colour after its gentle maturation in our finest American oak barrels.
Indulge in a flavour that symbolises both our distillery and our region, with the result of the first-fill bourbon finish presenting notes of vanilla oak, coastal air, spicy aromatic fruits, and ground ginger.
Whisky from the Whiskiest Place
To be one of the last Campbeltown distilleries representing Scotland, we believe that our single malt scotch whisky - from our Double Cask to our 18 Year Old and beyond - offers whisky enthusiasts an opportunity to be transported to a special time and place with every sip.
If you want your next dram to tell you a unique story of community, endurance, and charm; of the rise and decline and ebb and flow of a proud place; of warmth and kindliness that is waiting to be discovered - then we cannot wait to welcome you to Glen Scotia.
