MOSSTOWIE (1964 - 1981)      zie ook Miltonduff - Glenlivet

Elgin, Morayshire. Licentiehouder: George Ballantine & Son Ltd. Miltonduff -Glenlivet is onderdeel van Caledonian Malt Whisky Distillers Ltd. De malt divisie van Allied Distillers Ltd. Deel uitmakend van Hiram Walker Group Ltd. Eigendom van Allied Domecq.
Mosstowie is maar heel kort geproduceerd, van 1964 tot 1981. De whisky was afkomstig van 'Lomond' ketels die in die jaren naast de gewone ketels werden gebruikt om een whisky te produceren die voller, exotischer smaakten dan de whisky afkomstig uit de normale ketels.
De ketels zijn een uitvinding van Frank Whiting een medewerker van Hiram Walker en deze ketels werden voor het eerst gebruikt in de Lomond distil-leerderij te Dumbarton. Later ook bij Glenburgie - Glenlivet (Glencraig) Miltonduff - Glenlivet en bij Scapa (alleen een wash still).

Since 1895 Gordon & Macphail has worked with the majority of Scotland's distilleries
and today, matures, selects and bottles some of the world's finest and rarest Single
Malt Scotch Whiskies.

RARE  OLD  from Mosstowie Distillery

Between 1964 and 1981, Miltonduff Distillery produced two different Single Malts:
"Lomond"stills were installed to produce Mosstowie whisky.

In the 1950's Alistair Cunningham, a chemical engineer with Hiram Walker, designed the
"Lomond" Still a type of still which allowed different styles of whisky to be produced.

In 1964 a pair of Lomond stills were installed at Miltonduff Distillery and Mosstowie Single
Malt was produced.

This continued until 1981 when the demand for Miltonduff, a key component of Ballantines
Blend increased.

As a result the Lomond stills were altered to produce Miltonduff whisky.


Hiram Walker (Scotland) Ltd. was the great pioneer of Lomond stills in the 1950s. Compared to traditional pot stills they were a lot more versatile – you could adjust the position of the lyne arm and the number of rectifying plates in the neck to vary the amount of reflux and thus heaviness of the spirit. It was deemed perfect for the company’s flagship blend – Ballantine’s Finest, and so Lomond stills were installed at Hiram Walker’s Inverleven, Glenburgie, Scapa and Miltonduff distilleries.

The whisky produced using Miltonduff’s Lomond stills was named Mosstowie, and while the majority was used for the Ballantine’s blend, there have been occasional independent bottlings as a single malt.

PRODUCED AT
Miltonduff

The Canadian distiller Hiram Walker had owned George Ballantine & Son since 1935, and bought Miltonduff distillery on Speyside a year later.

With the post-war surge in blended Scotch, especially in North America, the firm needed to ramp up production and produce a sufficient variety of malts for the likes of Ballantine’s Finest. One of these was Mosstowie – a so-called ‘Lomond malt’ which went into production in 1964 at Miltonduff distillery.

But with the rectifying plates notoriously hard to clean and little demand from other blenders, Mosstowie was abandoned in 1981 and the stills were ripped out and replaced with traditional pot stills.
