Bladnoch Distillery

Region: Lowlands
District: Borders

Bladnoch Distillery was founded in 1817 by the McClelland brothers, John and Thomas. It is the southernmost of all Scotland distilleries and is located in the southwest corner of the Scotland mainland about a mile from Wigtown and on a river by the same name. It has had an inconsistent history of both production and ownership. It was mothballed from 1939 to 1945 during World War II. Opened again in 1956, it was sold two more times with some expansion taking place at various times. Sold to the well-established Bell's conglomerate in 1983, production consistency was maintained until it was taken out of production again in 1993. There are no plans to reopen this classic Lowland distillery in the near future.
