Glen Mhor 1895 Warehouse Extension
We're moving into November 1895, just over a year since Glen Mhor started production. It seems somewhat bizarre that work was already being considered to expand the site. Today's discovery is remarkable and confirms that it did actually happen.
This new find was not even on our in-depth timeline until now. As the timeline continues to evolve with new discoveries, so does our understanding of Glen Mhor.
This specific extension relates to the original warehouse at the back end of the distillery. Through our previous research we knew that the additional warehouses (that backed onto the football ground) started to appear in 1898. We have those plans to consider in a future article. However, I was always under the impression that the original warehouse ran the length of the site and was completed in 1894 alongside the distillery buildings. It makes sense doesn't it?
