GLEN MHOR (1892 - 1983)


Inverness. Licentiehouders: Mackinlay & Birnie. Glen Mhor is onderdeel van Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd. (S.M.D.). De malt divisie van de Distillers Company Ltd. (D.C.L).

Gesloten in 1983, ontmanteld in 1988.
Gesticht in 1892 door John Birnie en James Mackinlay. Glen Mhor is Keltisch en beteknt groot dal, vernoemd naar het grote dal dat loopt van Fort William naar Inverness.
John Birnie, eerst bedrijfsleider van Glen Albyn ging een compagnonschap met James Mackinlay van Charles Mackinlay & Co, whiskyblenders en handelaren te Leith.
Het ontwerp was van Charles Doig. In December 1894 werd Glen Mhor opgestart. Het water voor de produktie van Glen Mhor kwam van Loch Ness.
In 1906 werd John Walker & Sons Ltd eigenaar van 40 % van de aandelen van Glen Mhor.
De distilleerderij werd toen ook uitgebreid.
Mackinlay & Birnie Ltd kochten in 1920 de Glen Albyn distilleerderij.
Beide distilleerderijen waren in zowel de eerste- als de tweede wereldoorlog gesloten.
Neil M. Gunn, die veel over whisky heeft geschreven was hoofd van de accijnzen van Glen Mhor van 1923 tot 1937 en had een grote voorliefde voor deze whisky.
In 1949 werd de vloermouterij door het Saladin systeem, maar werd gesloten in 1980.
Charles Mackinlay & Co werd in 1961 overgenomen door Scottish & Newcastle Breweries en werd de Schotse whiskydivisie van de Waverley Group tot 1985 toen Mackinlay werd overgenomen door Invergordon Distillers voor E 17.5 000.000.
Glen Mhor en Glen Albyn werden in 1972 overgenomen door Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd, (S.M.D.) die al via John Walker & Sons, aandeelhouder was in de distilleerderijen.
Glen Mhor en Glen Albyn werden gesloten in 1983 en ontmanteld. Glen Mhor had één Wash Still en één Spirit still.

Opposites attract
The Story of Glen Mhor Distillery, Inverness-shire.
The story of Glen Mhor begins across the road - the Great North Road at Inverness, where in 1884 corn merchants, Grgory & Co, had built a new distillery at Glen Albyn, on the site of the ruined Muirtown Brewery. Well situated on the Caledonian Canal where it falls to the sea, and supplied with water from Loch Ness, the new distillery prospered, thanks in no small part to its energetic manager, John Birnie.
Unable to see his efforts rewarded by a partnership, he set up a rival business with his friend and customer, Leith merchant Charles Mackinlay.
In 1892 the pair engaged Charles Doig, doyen of distillery designers, to build a brand new distillery directly opposite. There was, after all, no shortage of water supply. Meeting succes the partners formed a private company in 1906, now backed by their trade customers John Walker & Sons.
In 1920, they were able to complete their conquest by buying Glen Albyn.
The two distilleries were worked in partnership for the rest of their lives, joining first Scottish Malt Distillers, then the Distillers Company before finally each falling victim to the rapid expansion of Inverness in the 1980s.

October 2005

Diageo has announced that its 2005 Annual Rare Malts Selection will be the last.

The collection will consist of four cask strenght single malts from closed distilleries; Glen Mhor 28 years old, Millburn 35 years old, Glendullan 26 years old and Linkwood 30 years old.
Dr. Nicholas Morgan, global malts marketing director commented: 'As the Special Releases are now well established, it makes less sence to continue selecting and promoting a parallel series of Rare Malts with his own separate indentity'.
In future, all premium and rare whiskies will be made available in the annual Special Releases series.

THE RARE MALTS SELECTION
The Rare Malts Selection, now drawing to a close after ten years, has always been made from remarkable cask-strenght single malt Scotch whiskies; among the rarest, most precious stocks to survive in Scotland.
Looked after undisturbed by careful hands since birth, each has been nurtured to perfection, then selected on merit by a distinguished panel of experts.
Often twenty or more years of age, many Rare Malts have been so rare that they will never be seen again.
Connoisseurs have appreciated their full rich colour and enjoyed their true depth of flavour, thanks to unfiltered cask-strenght bottling.
Nosing them has been an act of reverence to enjoy in itself. When tasting, it has always been advised that the correct dilution for a cask-strenght Rare Malt should be two parts water to one of whisky.
Each individually numbered bottle has revealed a most intriguing character, its individuality emphasised by a quirk peculiar to natural cask strenght bottlings.
So small has been each bottling run that every Rare Malt, drawn from casks, which naturally differ, has had its own unique strenght.
The Rare Malts Selection: each unique to taste, give, collect and now, to remember with affection.

THE LAST RARE MALTS SELECTION
The Rare Malts have always been, by definition, rare. They have never been on widespread sale. Available only in selected outlets, each has been released as a strictly limited edition of individually numbered bottles.
As with fine vintage wine, the supply of Rare Malts has been restricted by availability.
Once each was exhausted, its place in the Selection was taken by an equally rare bottling of a similarly fine old single malt.
And now, the stocks from which the Rare Malts were drawn are almost exhausted, the very last selection has been made.
It is limited to no more than 6000 bottles of each make, and is additionally distinguished by coming in part from closed distilleries.
The last of the last. Truly, these are The Rare Malts.
