Bladnoch Whisky

Bladnoch Lowland Whisky

The southernmost distillery in Scotland. 
The Bladnoch distillery closed in 1993 and was in 1994 bought by the Irishman Raymond Armstrong whom, with a big effort along with Still-man John Harris, restarted production in 2000. At the same time, he bought old Bladnoch casks. These casks were then allowed to be transported to Denmark by FC-Whisky.
