Linkwood 12 Year Old Malt Flora & Fauna Series
Linkwood distillery was founded in 1821 by Peter Brown. After Brown’s death his son, William, took over and established a very good reputation for the distillery. William totally rebuilt the distillery in the 1870s. The distillery was taken over bt D.C.L. in 1936 and like other distilleries closed during the war due to a shortage of barley. One of the managers in the 1930s was so paranoid that every single  thing played its part in the making of the whisky,  that he ordered that nothing, not even a cobweb should be removed. He would have been dismayed in 1962 when the distillery layout was radically altered and in 1971 when Linkwood whisky production was tripled with the addition of a second distilling unit with two pairs of stills which was built alongside the 2 original Linkwood stills.

Only 2% of the malt produced at Linkwood is sold as single malt, the remaining malt goes into the popular UDV blends such as Bells, White Horse and Haig.
