The distillery was a home for the Ladyburn single malt, for 10 years. Today, it is a home plant for Hendrick's Gin and Ailsa Bay malt Whisky distillery.
The first spirit from the distillery ran in Christmas of 1963, as a memoir to William Grant, who managed to produce the first spirit of Glenfiddich, on Christmas day. 
The distillery uses Quercus Alba wood for its barrels, to ensure a fruity, vanilla boomer Whisky.


Member's favorites from Girvan
This grain Whisky distillery is located on the Clyde, in the coastal Lowlands.

William Grant & Sons decided to build Girvan Distillery after a dispute with Distillers Company Limited. WGS decided to run a TV ad for Standfast Whisky from Grant's, DCL was against this, so WGS decided to build the Girvan distillery. They did it in just 9 months.

Original Coffey stills were used until 1995. Nowadays Girvan uses 6 column stills for its production. The distillery mainly produces grain Whisky for brands as well as Hendrick's Gin. It was also a site for Ladyburn Whisky at one point.
