Port Dundas
Distillery
Founded in 2015
Located one mile north of Glasgow's city center, historic Port Dundas Distillery was once the largest in Scotland, producing up to 39 million liters of spirit annually.

The distillery was part of a larger industrial complex at the terminus of the Forth and Clyde Canal, which housed everything from chemical works to foundries.

The site originally played host to two distilleries, the first founded by Daniel Macfarlane in 1811, and the second by Brown, Gourlie and Co., in 1813. The distilleries merged in the 1860s, and were destroyed by fires in 1903 and 1916.

Production halted during WWII, then resumed after a thorough modernization of the facilities. The grain Whisky produced here, up to its final closure in 2010, has been used in numerous blended Whiskies, including Johnnie Walker, J&B and Haig, among others.

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.
