Glenugie – lost distillery

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Glenugie distilleryA few weeks ago, Jean-Luc from Connosr told me about a new series in their online magazine Connosr Distilled. I was asked to present one of the lost distilleries.

While I have a few favourites among the closed / silent distilleries, most of them have quite a lot of fame and are well-known: Brora, Port Ellen, Caperdonich, St. Magdalene… So I decided to go for a lesser known distillery that is even rarer and surprised me a couple of times with its outstanding quality: Glenugie.

  • sjoerd972: The looking around tip is great. Prices vary hugely. I made the mistake last year of buying one for £ 90, while I could have had it for about € 80
