Old Rhosdhu

Region: Highlands
District: Western

Old Rhosdhu is produced at Loch Lomond Distillery, along with Inchmurrin single malt. It is a relatively new, and thus rather rare malt, until recently. The first production of this malt took place in the mid-1960s and has been bottled for general distribution only in the last few years. The distillery is located in Dumbartonshire and actually sits astride the Highlands/Lowlands boundary line. It is classified as a Highland, however, since it gets its water from Loch Lomond, which is in the Highlands. Loch Lomond Distillery, where Old Rhosdhu is actually produced, was formerly a calico-dyeing factory which was converted to a distillery in 1965-66. Due to the "Lomond type" of stills, which have rectifying columns in the still heads, different styles of whisky can be produced. So, in addition to Old Rhosdhu, a malt by the name of Inchmurrin is also distilled.
