Glen Flagler and Killyloch Distillery History

This distillery has one of the shortest life spans of all Scotland’s distilleries.  


Inver House (Then a subsidiary of Publicker Industries Philadelphia constructed Glen Flagler distillery within the Moffat grain distillery site at Airdire. This was a new build distillery complex on the site of the former Moffat paper mill.


The site consisted of 32 warehouses, a cooperage, blending and bottling plants, plus the large Moffat maltings when built, claimed to be the largest commercial maltings in Europe. These malting were later sold to Associated British Maltsters in 1978.  


The complex had five continuous stills producing neutral spirit and a grain whisky called Garnheath.  Also two pairs of pot stills, each producing their own malt whiskies - Glen Flagler and Killyloch


Killyloch ceased production in the early 1970's, Glen Flagler (1985) and Garnheath (1986) followed a decade later both closed down and dismantled.


Since then the maltings and bottling plants have disappeared although the 37 warehouses remain.


Due to a managerial buy out of £8.2 million in 1988 Inver House became an independent of Publicker Industries


Glen Flagler was produced as Vatted Malt
