Albyn Single Malt Scotch Whisky
original Glen Albyn Distillery was founded in 1844 by the
Inverness Provost at the time, James Sutherland. Three years
later, fire destroyed the main building of the distillery
and production did not resume until 1852. However, misfortune
continued when the the owner went bankrupt another three years
later and the distillery closed. Although used briefly as
a flour mill, Glen Albyn lay silent until 1884 when it was
purchased by A.M. Gregory who rebuilt the distillery, kept
the same name and had his own railway which linked to the
Telford Street, Inverness
Highland, IV3 5LD Scotland
