Altduanalt distillery

Highland single malt Scotch whisky

The short-lived distillery at Rhu, then spelled Row, in Dunbartonshire is mysterious and hard to locate.

Alt or Allt means stream or burn, so it probably stood on one of the many burns that flow through the area into the Gareloch. Unfortunately, they are not individually named on any map, current or historic.

A farm named Letrualt sits beside one of them – a possible location for Altduanalt – and a nearby road is called Smuggler’s Way – a hint at illicit distilling activity?
