The Glen Mhor distillery was built in 1892 by Birnie and Mackinlay. From 1892 until 1972 Glen Mhor single malt whisky was produced and managed by the Birnie family. Glen Mhor was once powered by a water turbine, and was the first distillery to use Saladin boxes for the malting of barley. In 1972, the distillery became property of the D.C.L (Distillers Company Ltd) which became United Distillers & Vintners. DCL sadly closed the distillery in 1983. The distillery was demolished in 1986 and a shopping centre was erected on the site.

Availability of original bottlings of Glen Mhor are getting very rare as time passes, so if you are thinking of adding a bottle to your collection don't leave it to long. You can still find bottlings from independent bottlers such as Gordon & MacPhail, but even these are getting harder to find.
