Ballygrant distillery

Islay single malt Scotch whisky

Ballygrant distillery stood briefly on the road from Bridgend to Port Askaig, at a farm near the Ballygrant Burn. Some sources state that Ballygrant was the same as Lossit/Lossett distillery, but that was located on a different farm.

Despite its short history, it retains the title of being the nearest licensed distillery to the legendary seat of the onetime Lord of the Isles at Finlaggan.
