Inchmurrin

Region: Highlands
District: Western

Inchmurrin is named after one of the scenic islands of Loch Lomond. It is a relatively new, and thus rather rare malt, until recently. The first production of this malt took place in the mid-1960s and has been bottled for general distribution only in the last few years. The distllery is located in Dumbartonshire and actually sits astride the Highlands/Lowland boundary line. It is classified as a Highland, however, since it gets its water from Loch Lomond, which is in the Highlands. Loch Lomond Distillery, where Inchmurrin is actually produced, was formerly a calico-dyeing factory which was converted to a distillery in 1965-66. Due to the "Lomond type" of stills, which have rectifying columns in the still heads, different styles of whisky can be produced. So, in addition to Inchmurrin, a malt by the name of Old Rhosdhu is also distilled.
