LINLITHGOW   (1797 -1983)  zie ook ST. MAGDALENE
Linlithgow, West Lothian. Licentiehouder: John Hopkins & Co, Ltd.
St. Magdalene maakt deel uit van Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd. (S.M.D.)
De malt divisie van United Distillers Ltd. Eigendom van Guinness.
St. Magdalene was ook wel bekend onder de naam Linlithgow. Deze naam wordt wel gebruikt door onafhankelijke bottelaars.

This noble early distillery was founded in the late 18th century on the lands of St. Magdalene's Cross at Linlithgow, birthplace in 1542 of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland, France and very nearly, of England too. It was a majestic setting;
'Of all palaces so fair Built for the royal dwelling In Scotland, far beyond compare Linlithgow is exelling' 'Marmion'.
While the distillery developed, the magnificent remains of the former Royal Palace suvived as an inspiration to painters and poets. 'Master of light' J.M.W. Turner came in 1833, to paint the picture you see here. The chronicler, Alfred Barnard, visited the distillery fifty years later. He found the town 'a dull, sleepy place' though 'rich in splendid ruins... which more than compensate....'.
Linlithgow continued to produce fine Lowland malts into the 1980s, before itself falling into disuse. The ruined royal palace has now outlasted its more recent companion, just as the memory of its tragic Queen lives on in Scotland before that of her heirs.

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 Re-leases series.
