Cambus
Distillery
Founded in 1836
Cambus Distilery was located in the city of Stirling, which is at the crossroads of Scotland -- midway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, where the Lowlands meet the Highlands. Sometimes this region is referred to as "The Midlands," but "Midlands" is not an official regional designation for Scotch.

John Mowbray founded Cambus in 1836. In 1877, Robert Moubray purchased the distillery and joined it with five other Lowland grain distilleries to form Distillers Company Limited. The facility was largely damaged by a fire in 1913, and had to be rebuilt. It did not open again until 1938.

Largley thought to have been on of the finest examples of single grain Whisky in Scotland, such products fell out of favor, and the distillery closed for good in 1993.

During its lifetime, most of its production went into various Whisky blends, but a small percentage was held back for single grain production, which is still highly sought after by collectors.

What does Cambus taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Cambus Scotch. It's based on all Cambus drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Cambus before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

About
Lowlands
Perching just above England, the Lowlands can play truant from peat or salinity. 

Triple distilled malts are characteristic of the region, offering a gentle, elegant palate reminiscent of grass, honeysuckle, cream, ginger, toffee, toast and cinnamon.

The Lowlands are master of the Whisky blend and are also known for their silent stills, which sadly no longer produce.
