About the distillery
Littlemill Distillery, region Lowland, located in Bowling is believed to have been founded by George Buchanan as early as 1772 and is one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries and potentially one of the oldest in the world however it was unsuccessful and changed hands on a number of occasions. The first licensee of the distillery was Jane McGregor who was the first female distiller in Scotland. The distillery was rebuilt and modernized in 1875 by then owner William Hill and continued to produce until 1928 when it was mothballed. Again changing hands on a number of occasions it was purchased by Gibson International in 1989 and cease production in 1992 with Gibson International filing for bankruptcy in 1994. Glen Cathring Bonded Warehouse Ltd bought the distillery but moved the stills to Loch Lomond distillery and ran the distillery as a museum until it completely closed in 1996.
