Glen Scotia itself has had a bit of a chequered history. It was founded in 1832, by Stewart, Galbraith and Co, and situated now in the centre of Campbeltown, the one-time whisky capital of the world. Campbeltown, famously, had about thirty distilleries at one point, as its position on the Kintyre peninsula made export to the USA very easy – before prohibition, that was… The distillery exchanged hands several times after numerous financial failures. More recently it was overhauled in 1979 with a million pounds of investment, only to close a few years later. Loch Lomond distillery took over in 2000, and now produce 100,000 litres of whisky a year from the place. Back in the day there were limited Glen Scotia releases from an 8 year old through to a 26 year old. But it’s only in recent years that the distillery has produced a solid core range, which today includes a 15 year old and the Victoriana, which is a decent dram too.
