Inchgower distillery was built in 1871
by the nephew of the founder of Tonicheal
distillery, Alexander Wilson. Inchgower
was actually a replacement for
Tonicheal, the move to a new distillery
was because the landlord of Tonicheal
wanted to double the price of the rent.
The new distillery was considered to be
a model in those days. Inchgower has
even been owned by Buckie council
between 1930 and 1936, it was then
purchased by Arthur Bell & sons.
In 1966, the distillery was modernised
and its production capacity
was increased when the number of
was doubled from 2 to 4. Arthur Bell & Sons
was taken over by Guinness in 1985.
Guinness then became UDV a few years
later. Only 1% of the malt produced is
sold as single malt, the remaining malt
is used in the Bell's, White Horse and
Johnnie Walker and blended whiskies.
