Glen Scotia

Region: Campbeltown
District: null

At one time, Glen Scotia was one of thirty-two distilleries in the Campbeltown region of Scotland. Today, it is one of only two distilleries that remain in this one-time "whisky capital" of Scotland. Glen Scotia Distillery was founded about 1832 and has had several owners. In some bottlings, it has a heavier and stronger flavor than the other Campbeltown malt, Springbank. It also has a hint of oiliness that is not prevelant in the Springbank. This could be due to the practice of separately distilling the foreshoots and feints and the extra distilling step that Springbank adds.
