Before its demolition, Kinclaith was the oldest malt whisky distillery in Glasgow. The distillery really doesn't match the traditional image of a malt whisky distillery. It existed within the Speyside grain whisky complex. Unfortunately it was closed after 18 years of service.
Bottlings of Kinclaith are extremely rare. Due to their rareness, the prices of the bottlings have continued to soar since the distillery's closure in 1975. This scarcity is made even more intense by the fact that Kinclaith never actually released an official bottling. Signatory Vintage and Gordon & MacPhail have produced independent bottlings from the site. Many of these independent bottlings were vintages from the mid-to late 1960s. Kinclaith has not been a distillery by itself.
