Glenlochy was built in 1898 by the Glenlochy - Fort William Distillery Co Ltd, which was founded by David McAndie of Nairn. He had hoped to be part of the whisky boom but had left it too late and unfortunately opened the distillery during the Pattison crash. Glenlochy only stayed in production until 1919. Except for a short time during 1925 the distillery lay silent until 1937. Thomas Rankin, a local businessman bought the distillery in 1937 but it was not long before he had sold it onto Train and McIntyre. Train and McIntyre then transferred it to their subsidiary Associated Scottish Distillers Ltd, who acquired Bruichladdich, Benromach, Fettercairn, Glenesk, Glenury Royal and Strathdee distilleries around the same time. In 1953 Train and McIntyre was acquired by DCL. DCL kept Glenlochy in production until 1983, it was closed due to the rationalisation programme.

This is one distillery that will never open again because in 1992 the site was sold and everything in the distillery was destroyed. The site was made into a hotel complex except for the maltings and kilns as they are listed buildings. There are still a few independent bottlings around but as time goes on these will get harder to find.
