Littlemill distillery was established in 1772 and certainly has a legitimate claim to being the oldest distillery in Scotland. Until the 1930's the distillery produced triple distilled whisky. The design of the stills at Littlemill were quite a unique design, Mr Thomas the owner of the distillery was responsible for this design, which was pot stills with rectifying columns at their neck similar to the stills you would find at a grain whisky distillery. The theory was that this design would produce a whisky which would mature more quickly. At one time the distillery made three different malt whiskies, these were Littlemill, Dunglass and Dumbuck.

Littlemill has had many owners throughout the years but is now owned by the Loch Lomond Distillery Company. It was closed for some years during the 1980s but reopened in 1989. In 1994 it closed again, but this time much of the distilling equipment was dismantled.

Sadly it seems doubtful that the distillery will ever produce again due to a major fire destroying the distillery building in September 2004. The distillery remains closed, but supplies for bottling should be available for some years to come.
