Mitchell`s Glengyle Distillery is an independent, family run distillery. Founded by William Mitchel in 1872, the distillery remains in the ownership of the Mitchell family today.
Glengyle closed down in 1925 and was reinstated after 75 non-producing years in 2004. The first distillery to open in Scotland this millennium.
Every stage in production is carried out in Campbeltown. The distillery is using Crosshill Loch water throughout the whole process, from steeping the barley to bottling the whisky. The barley is traditionally floor malted at their sister distillery, Springbank, then transferred to Glengyle Distillery for milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation and filling to cask.

Nose: oak notes are dominant, followed by toasted marshmallows and dried fruit pudding, as well as cherries, marzipan and a hint of peat
Palate: initially fruity with citrus notes and orange peel, after this: vanilla, butterscotch,
honeycomb and digestive biscuits can all be tasted and enjoyed
Finish: velvet and smooth with lemon meringue, to conclude, there’s an oiliness and a saltiness that you’d expect from a Campbeltown dram
