North of Scotland (silent)

Constructed in 1957 by George P. Christie’s North of Scotland Distilling Co.  By the following year North of Scotland was producing grain whisky from its three patent stills, which had the capacity to distil 2,700 litres of wash per hour, and malt whisky from its two copper pot stills. The malt set-up was called Strathmore.  Such was the demand for grain whisky at the time, that only a year later the malt content was stripped out in favour of increasing the grain production.  North of Scotland was closed in 1980 and the distillery and buildings sold   to DCL (now Diageo) in 1982.  The first official bottling of North of Scotland was released (as a 50-year-old) in 2017
