Linlithgow (silent)

(Lin-Lith-GO)

Or Saint Magdalene distillery, Linlithgow refers to the name of the town where it was located and may have been established as early as 1765 by one Sebastian Henderson. The location (some 10 miles west of Edinburgh) was used as a leper colony in the 12th century and as a convent after that. Saint Magdalene / Linlithgow was one of the first licensed distilleries on record, completely refitted in 1927 and (like so many other distilleries in Scotland) mothballed in 1983 with most of the old distillery buildings having been converted into flats, but the pagoda roofs are still present. This lost Lowland distillery along with Rosebank and Littlemill have a huge cult following and well worth seeking out for a more old fashioned style of Lowland.
