Glen Scotia distillery or sometimes affectionately known as The Scotia or Old Scotia is a distillery that is a producer of single malt Scotch whisky. The distillery was founded in 1832 in Campbeltown, Scotland.
Scotia was established in 1832 by the town’s Dean of Guild James Stewart and Provost John Galbraith. By 1835 Scotia was one of the 29 thriving Distilleries in Campbeltown. In the Great Depression and Prohibition were playing their part. By 1929 only three distilleries remained open in Campbeltown due to the Great Depression and Prohibition. Then March 20 1930 saw the last production at Scotia before the distillery fell silent. Thankfully, the Bloch Brothers bought the distillery in 1933 and reopened as Glen Scotia.
In 2014, the distillety was bought by the Loch Lomond Group who have invested and developed this legendary brand, increasing capacity, opening warehouses and creating a visitor centre. Today, Glen Scotia continues to thrive at the heart of the whiskiest place in the world.
