Bladnoch’s rich history dates back to 1817, when John and Thomas McClelland were first granted a licence to distil whisky on their Bladnoch farm in Scotland’s Lowlands. In the ensuing years, Bladnoch Distillery grew and was modernised, cementing its status as “Queen of the Lowlands”. Australian businessman, David Prior, purchased Bladnoch Distillery in 2015 with a vision to restore it to its former glory. Shortly after, the distillery resumed production with award-winning Master Distiller, Ian MacMillan, at the helm. In 2017, Bladnoch Distillery celebrated its 200 year anniversary, making it the oldest privately owned Scotch distillery. With reverence for their distillery’s 200 year history, and anticipation for the future, they are inspired to create Lowland-style Scotch whisky for the modern-day whisky lover to enjoy.
