Littlemill Distillery, which was officially established in 1772 on the site of a 14th century brewery, is situated on the north bank of the River Clyde at Bowling on the Forth & Clyde canal. Prior to 1900 there were as many as 213 distilleries operating in the Lowlands of Scotland. Today there are just five, Auchentoshan, on the outskirts of Glasgow, Bladnoch in Wigtownshire and Glenkinchie in East Lothian, Daftmill in Fife and Ailsa Bay.Throughout Littlemill’s official’ 200 year history, the distillery had many owners but it was in 1992 that the distillery finally ceased production when the then owners went into liquidation. The distillery lay dormant for 12 years when finally on the 4th September 2004, what was reckoned to be Scotland’s third oldest distillery, was destroyed by fire.
