Glenlochy
Distillery
Founded in 1898
The Glenlochy Distillery was founded in the middle of the town Fort William. This distillery is another one  founded during the Whisky boom.

David McAndie founded the distillery in 1898, naming it Glenlochy-Fort William Distillery. From the First World War, the distillery experienced a lot of ups and downs, and in 1983, Glenlochy was taken out of service.

The distillery used water from River Nevis and had one wash and one spirit still. Floor maltings were used until 1968, until they were replaced with the drum maltings at the Glen Ord Distillery.

What does Glenlochy taste like?

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