Ladyburn distillery

Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

An incredibly rare whisky, Ladyburn has only been bottled on two occasions by its owner. Independent bottlings are equally hard to find. It appears to have been a straight down the line malt with some delicate floral/lemon notes and a crisp finish.

Ladyburn History

The whisky boom of the 1960s resulted in a brief fashion for malt distilleries being ensconced within grain distilleries: Kinclaith in Strathclyde; Glenflagler and Killyloch from Moffat; Ben Wyvis in Invergordon; and Inverleven & Lomond in Dumbarton. Ladyburn was a member of that gang.

It was built within William Grant & Sons’ Girvan grain complex in 1966, its four stills destined to produce fillings for the Grant’s blends and also to free up stock from Glenfiddich which was, by then, beginning to make a name for itself as a single malt brand.

However, when the grain side of Girvan’s operation needed to expand in 1975, Ladyburn was dismantled. Its spirit lingers on because, in 2007, another single malt distillery opened within Girvan – Ailsa Bay.
