Dumbarton Distillery

Dumbarton from Scottish Gaelic Dùn Breatann or Dùn Breatainn, meaning ‘fort of the Britons’ is a town in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, Lowland Region on the north bank of the River Clyde where the River Leven flows into the Clyde estuary. In 2006, it had an estimated population of 19,990.

 

Dumbarton was the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Alclud, and later the county town of Dunbartonshire. Dumbarton Castle, on top of Dumbarton Rock, dominates the area. Dumbarton was a Royal burgh between 1222 and 1975.

 

Dumbarton emerged from the 19th century as a centre for shipbuilding, glass-making, and whisky production, but declined and closed over the years.

 

Whisky production had grown to become a major industry in the town. In 1936 Canadian distilling company Hiram Walker bought over the Glasgow-based distiller George Ballantine & Son Ltd. In 1938 they built a large whisky distillery on the river Leven (on the site of the Archibald McMillan shipyard).The town became known as a major centre of the whisky industry in the mid to late 20th century.

 

Hiram Walker itself was acquired by Allied Breweries in 1988 to form Allied Distillers, itself becoming part of Allied Domecq before eventually being taken over in 2005 by the French-based alcohol giant Pernod Ricard.

 

The large Dumbarton distillery was mothballed in 2002 and not long after the Pernod-Ricard takeover the giant red-brick buildings of the Dumbarton ‘Ballantine’s’ distillery which had dominated the town for over sixty years were earmarked for demolition and redevelopment. 

 

Work started to demolish Dumbarton distillery and the remains of the distillery were demolished throughout January and February 2017.  The large bonded warehouse complex to the east of the town and the bottling complex to the north-west were retained.

Duncan Taylor Independent Bottlers.

Is a family owned business producing quality Scotch whisky. For over 40 years they have experimented maturing whiskies in smaller casks.

 

The company was initially a merchant and broker of Scotch whisky casks in Glasgow. Devotion to the principle of providing only the finest casks to be filled at Scotland’s leading distilleries has been a key feature of the company’s history.

 

Duncan Taylor has been laying down casks from premium Scottish distilleries for decades.

 

In 2002 Duncan Taylor moved its headquarters to Huntly, on the periphery of Speyside, Scotland’s largest whisky producing region, where it has its own facilities for cask storage, bottling, a cooperage and very soon, its own distillery.

 

At that time, Duncan Taylor ceased the “brokering” of whisky casks to distillery companies and bottlers to focus on the production and marketing of its own brands, and diversifying the portfolio with the addition of gin and rum.

 

Today it owns one of the largest privately held collections of vintage and rare scotch whisky casks.
