About the distillery
Ben Nevis Distillery, region Highland, located in fort William was founded in 1825 by Long John Mcdonald. Long John remained the owner until his death in 1856 where the ownership was passed to his son Donald Mcdonald who expanded the distillery. In 1955 Joseph Hobbs investment group took Ownership of the distillery and began producing Grain as well as Malt whisky. Long John Distillers acquired ownership in 1971 (the company formed by the original founder Long John) and immediately removed the Coffee still used for grain production and focused on Malt whisky only. In 1986 the distillery closed its doors with the global economy falling into recession and in 1989 was sold to the Japanese company Nikka. Recently with the highly sought after Japanese whisky Ben Nevis have begun filling casks with ex Nikka Whisky to give the Scottish product an infusion of the Japanese taste in whisky. These were also available for public ownership.
