Bladnoch

Bladnoch

Det sydligst beliggende destilleri i Skotland
Bladnoch destilleriet lukkede i 1993, og i 1994 blev det købt af Ireren Raymond Armstrong, der efter en
kæmpe indsats med Stillmand John Harris startede produktionen op igen i 2000. Samtidig købte han gamle Bladnoch
fade op og disse fik FC-Whisky lov til at importere til Danmark.
