The Scapa distillery was established in 1885 by Glasgow distillers Townsend & MacFarlane. The distillery is located at Scapa Flow an area famous for its role in both World Wars as it linked the North Sea with the Atlantic Ocean. The entire German naval fleet was scuttled their after World War I. During World War I sailors of the Royal Navy saved the distillery from being destroyed by fire.

In 1941, the distillery was purchased by the Bloch Brothers Ltd who already owned Glen Scotia in Campbeltown. Hiram Walker then bought the distillery in 1954. They rebuilt the distillery in 1959 adding amongst other things a Lomond still. The distillery is now owned Allied Distillers Ltd. Sadly the Scapa distillery was mothballed in 1994. In 2005 Pernod-Ricard took control of Allied but so far they have shown no indication of reopening Scapa.

Most of the whisky that was produced at Scapa was used in blends such as Teacher's and Ballantine's, but there was a few official bottlings of Scapa single malt released.
