There is a long history of malt distilleries being built within grain plants: Inverleven, Ben Wyvis, Glen Flager, Killyloch and Ladyburn. All of these were built by blending companies and came into use when an increase in production was deemed necessary. All then closed when a downturn in demand occurred.
It was a slightly different reason which prompted William Grant & Sons in 2007 to build Ailsa Bay on the same Girvan site where Ladyburn had once stood. This time not only were the Grant’s blends (the Family Reserve range and Clan MacGregor), both growing, but so was demand for their Glenfiddich and Balvenie single malt brands. Pressure on the latter was the main reason for the construction of this eight still, 12m litres per annum capacity site.

Nose: A very ‘thick’ nose; dark maple syrup, treacle and dark berries initially fill the senses. This is followed by wood spices, cinnamon and cloves along with a hint of dark chocolate.
Taste: The dark fruits and berries dominate the pallate; blackberries, red currents, raisins and plums coat the mouth. Hints of toffee, chocolate and cinnamon round off a wonderful lingering finish.
