About the Distillery
In Galloway, a collection of dark stone buildings sit perched on the river Bladnoch; the Bladnoch Distillery.
With rich history dating back to 1817, Bladnoch is a single malt scotch whisky distillery in the south west area of Scotland. It is one of six remaining lowland distilleries and one of the oldest whisky producers in Scotland.
The distillery was founded in 1817 by Thomas McClelland, and remained in the family’s hands till 1930 when it was acquired by the Belfast Distilling Company.
Once distilling as part of Bell’s, Bladnoch has been shaped under the guise of various owners during its almost 200 year history.
In 2015, after ceasing production for several years, Australian businessman David Prior purchased Bladnoch to revive the distillery and brand, alongside celebrated Master Distiller Ian MacMillan.
Inspired by the many flavours of Lowland style whiskies, Bladnoch’s single malts pay homage to the distillery’s roots, whilst Pure Scot – a contemporary blend – shakes up the category with a modern and versatile Scotch
