Collection: Glengoyne

Glengoyne Distillery is a whiskey distillery that has been in continuous operation since its inception in 1833 in Dumgoyne, Scotland, north of Glasgow. Glengoyne is exceptional in that it produces Highland single malt whiskey that has been matured in the Lowlands. The Glengoyne Stills lie along the Highland Line, which separates Scotland's Highlands and Lowlands; Whiskey aging casks are located in the Lowlands across the highway.
Many whiskey makers were driven illegally in the early 1800s by government levies on the production of spirits. The hills and trees surrounding Glengoyne provided great cover for the distillers. Records show that there were at least 18 illegal whiskey stills there.
In the 1820s an Act of Parliament was passed reducing the cost of the license required for distilling and the levy payable on the sale of spirits. The first of these illegal stills came about shortly after the passage of the Excise Act of 1823 (aka the Walsh Act), followed by Glengoyne later in 1833.
