Balmore distillery

Lowland single malt Scotch whisky

The distillery was situated on Balmore Farm, midway between Baldernock and Torrance, due north of Glasgow. In its day, Balmore sat amid a cluster of streams that fed down to the River Kelvin.

It was also a close neighbour of Bogside distillery.
