About Strathmill Distillery
The distillery is still active and is now owned by Diageo. The current capacity is 1,800,000 litres and its’ water source is a local spring within the grounds of the distillery.
Due to the whisky boom of the 1890’s, the corn mill was converted into a distillery called Glenisla-Glenlivet. This was changed in 1895 when the distillery changed hands. A gin producer W. & A. Gibley bought the premises and changed the name too Strathmill. It derived from the Gaelic term ‘Strath’ meaning ‘shallow valley’ and ‘mill’ referring to its previous purpose.
