The St Magdalene distillery was built at
the eastern end of the town of Linlithgow
in 1790 on the site of an old leper colony
which dated back to the 12th century.
The distillery was originally called
Linlithgow. The distillery was built near
the Union Canal, which made it easy to
transport the whisky. St Magdalene was
owned by Adam Dawson, one of the first
to apply for a legal distilling licence.
DCL (which later became UDV, after
merging with Guinness) bought the
distillery in 1912, and closed it
permanently in 1983. Sadly the
distillery building was sold for
property development has been converted
into flats. The buildings character has
been preserved, the pagoda roofs are
still present today.
The distillery produces two malt
whiskies, St Magdalene's and
Linlithgow. Both of which are now a very
rare single malts and are very highly
rated by malt whisky connoisseurs.
