Balmenach distillery was built by James McGregor who was the great grandfather of Sir Robert Bruce Lochart, author of the 1951 book "Scotch". According to the book, the area of the Highlands where Balmenach distillery is located was notorious for illicit distilling. Balmenach was one of the first distilleries in the Highlands to become legitimate after the Licensing Act of 1823. After having many different owners through the years the distillery was closed in 1993 but was then reopened in 1997 by Inver House Distillers. Inver House Distillers have not yet released any single malt bottlings for general sale yet, but are expected to release one in about 2010. However, a limited number of bottles of Balmenach 27 Year Old and 28 Year Old have been produced for their Highland Selection - a range of Limited Edition Single Malt Whiskies from each of the Inver House’s 5 distilleries. But these are very hard to get a hold of.
