Port Charlotte (Lochindaal Distillery) was the name of a distillery on Islay that was founded in 1829, it however was closed in 1929. It was closed mainly because of prohibition in the USA and the Wall Street Crash of 1928. It is however thought, thanks to some old photos, that this distillery produced a heavily peated whisky.
Bladnoch Distillery was founded in 1817, and is Scotland’s southernmost producer of whisky. It has survived various changes of ownership, and was saved from closure in 1994 by Northern Irish Businessman Raymond Armstrong and his partners. Since 2015 it has been owned by Australian entrepreneur David Prior, with the renowned Ian MacMillan, Master Blender, as Distillery Manager.
