Member's favorites from Littlemill
Littlemill was located on the border of the Highlands and the Lowlands.

Littlemill is known to be the oldest distillery in Scotland, maybe even the world. The date when Littlemill was founded is debatable. Owners changed several times, which makes it hard to keep track.

In 1989, Gibson International bought the distillery, however when they went bankrupt the distillery was bought by the Loch Lomond Group, and it was dismantled in 1994.

The distillery had 1 wash still and 1 spirit still. The stills themselves were copper, but had outer skins of light aluminum. Rectifying columns replaced the traditional swan necks in the stills. Barley was sourced from Speyside and in 1930, Manager Duncan Thomas introduced a Saladin's Box.
