Caol Ila Distillery, region Islay, located on Isle of Islay was founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson. The distillery changed hands on numerous occasions an in 1920 the distillery owners Bulloch Lade Ltd went into liquidation. A small group of individuals formed Caol lla Distillery Company Ltd and acquired the distillery before it was further sold onto the Distillers Company in 1927 and Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd in 1930 who were a subsidiary of DCL. The distillery did close its doors during WW2 between 1942-1945 when it reopened and continued to produce until 1972 and the distillery was re built and modernized. In 1986 DCL were acquired by Guinness forming United Distillers and in 1997 merged with Grand Metropolitan forming Diageo who remain owners of the distillery to date.
