Holm distillery

Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Pinpointing Holm distillery’s exact location is difficult, but it appears to have sat about a half-mile north-west of Kirkintilloch town centre near Springfield, off the Campsie Road beside a burn that flowed down to the River Kelvin.

Kirkintilloch is noteworthy inasmuch as it was one of a handful of Scottish burghs that voted to go ‘dry’ in the famous 1920 referendum, and it was decades before that referendum result was overturned.
