Two engineers in the company Hiram Walker, Alistair Cunningham and Arthur Warren constructed
a new type of still that could produce several styles of whisky and instead of a swan neck, they con-
structed a straight tube where just 3 adjustable plates were fitted and by changing the position of
the plates they could control the character of the spirit, they called it Lomond still.

6 Lomond stilles were installed, first in 1956 one in the Inverleven distillery within the Dumbarton
Grain distillery, then 2 at Glenburgie in 1958, one at Scapa in 1959 and 2 at Miltonduff distillery in

Only 2 are today operative: at Scapa and the old one from Inverleven bought by Bruicgladdich but
without , the plates are removed both at Scapa and Bruichladdich
