2008 Revival

In 2007 a group of investors, who were also whisky enthusiasts, were looking for a whisky distillery with heritage and one that produced high quality single malt Scotch whisky. Their trail led them to Glenglassaugh and soon after a deal was done to purchase the distillery.

On the 29th of February 2008 the keys were officially handed over to the newly formed ‘Glenglassaugh Distillery Company Limited’ and a new chapter for this illustrious distillery began.
Several months of refurbishing the distillery followed; replacing pipes, pumps and heat exchangers, installing a new boiler and steam heating system, erecting a new chimney and replacing all electrical systems. Thankfully the important process equipment such as the mashtun, the washbacks and the stills were all in working order and ready to be re-started.

On the 28th of November 2008 Scotland’s First Minister, Alex Salmond, started the malt mill for the first mash at Glenglassaugh distillery in 22 years. The first mash followed a few days later and the first new spirit ran from the stills on the 4th of December 2008 and was subsequently filled into cask on the 16th of December 2008.
