About The Distillery
Port Dundas was a magnificent sight in central Glasgow – the largest combined single malt and single grain distillery in Scotland during the golden years of blended whisky. It owed its status to being constantly innovative. One of the first places to install the emerging Coffey Still technology before the blending boom made all lowlanders get them, and a pioneering user of corn and rye before they were cool, Port Dundas literally went against the grain.
Though their single grain whisky was designed to hold flagship blends together, it’s a fantastic spirit in its own right – and when single grain whisky becomes the new obsession of the whisky community, don’t be surprised to see Port Dundas there; a smug ‘I told you so’ on its face.
If you travel to Glasgow today on a pilgrimage to the old Port Dundas distillery, though, you’ll be sadly out of luck. Not only did the distillery go silent in 2011, but the site has been completely cleared as well. Cameron Bridge took over Dundas’ responsibilities. Luckily, in its enduring way, the whisky has remained. Casks of Port Dundas single grain whisky are still out there, the scattered relics of a lost holy site.
