A new release for the members of Whiskybase

22 Aug 2019 1:04 pm

We have been able to select a very nice and interesting Glen Scotia.
The vintage 1999 is not seen often, specially as a distillery bottling.

A very nice story actually, a limited release available in our shop!

















Glen Scotia - 1999 some insights


Glen Scotia has a history of changing ownership regularly (like many other distilleries actually). But this one is quite interesting when the ownership changed again in 1999. At that point already one of the few surviving distilleries in Campbeltown.

The Glen Scotia distillery was closed between 1994 and May 1999. In 1999 the current owner: Loch Lomond Distillery Co Ltd re-opened the distillery, after it purchased the distillery from: Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouse Ltd. In the first months the distillery was operated under supervision of Springbank. Staff from the nearby distillery of Springbank, started production and helped out to get Glen Scotia back into action again.

Starting May 2000 Glen Scotia was operating with their own staff and has been doing that ever since. Upgrades were put into place to modernise a little bit.

This particular release was distilled in the initial period from the re-opening: November 1999. There are only 9 distillery releases of Glen Scotia 1999 known. We do see some Cadenhead and SMWS releases but original bottlings of 1999 Glen Scotia are a rare sight.

Since the beginning of this year Loch Lomond group is owned by a Chinese investment fund. The aim is to grow the brands (Loch Lomond, Glen Scotia) across the globe and deliver a more premium consumer experience.

Who knows what the future will bring, but 1999 was an interesting year. We selected this bottling based on the flavour and the interesting vintage.
