Wanted

 



My objective is to create a celebration and online resource for all things Glen Mhor. Prior to this, the distillery has been relatively overlooked, with most of the focus on closed distilleries going towards the more prominent ones like Brora, Port Ellen and Rosebank. These are all excellent distilleries in their own right, but so was Glen Mhor and countless others.

I am are seeking photographs, stories and any other material related to the distillery. Even if you were employed at the distillery, or have anecdotes from a relative who was employed there, we would be grateful to hear them. A great many people have contributed to this online resource, and it would be impractical to thank them individually. However, their efforts have resulted in the creation of something wonderful.

The whiskies will be discussed in more detail in the coming years.

I hope you enjoy what we've created so far and if you have anything new to offer, please get in touch via email (glenmhorwhisky at gmail.com), reach out via Instagram or leave a comment. We're also on Pinterest as well and of course, Facebook.

If you want to use any of my research or material, please get in touch and all I ask is that you give credit. 

I'm looking to find anything Glen Mhor related, especially the following publications that have been highlighted identified in our research:
  • Photographs within the distillery.
  • The booklet, Pictures of Inverness, with a peep into Glen Mhor Distillery, written by none other than Alfred Barnard. This was a promotional type publication, Barnard had written similar publications for Dalmore and White Horse which have survived. 
  • Glen Mhor Distillery, Inverness. The Wine and Spirit Trade Record, 8th October. 1907, pp. 1-8.
  • 17th November 1896, local firm Ross & MacBeth submit plans to the Inverness Dean Guild for 2 new warehouses at Glen Mhor.
  • The Distillation of Highland Malt Whisky by William Birnie, compiled in 1937 and retyped in 1963, issued by Brodie Hepburn Ltd, Glasgow. What we know of this publication, it was given out to friends, customers and journalists.
  • We also know that the distillery extension plans came up for sale on eBay in January 2020 (see below), sadly friends were unsuccessful in bidding for these plans. We'd love to be able to show you these in greater detail... Note, these warehouse extensions were from 1898.
