Today is another exciting day for us as we have started to build a new warehouse at Select Whiskies. Do you think we need one?
We are looking forward to continuing to stock and expand our range of rare whiskies, and now with our additional warehouse we have the space to do so!
We will keep you updated as our warehouse progresses, see our insta!
Today we wanted to focus on Littlemill distillery and why we are all so in love with their whiskies. Littlemill distillery was based in Bowling, West Dunbartonshire but the details surrounding the founding of the distillery are unclear. From the 1750s we know it was described as part of a purchase of Auchentorlie Estate, changing to Mathew Clark & Co in 1817, the distillery then went on to change hands a few more times before shutting doors in 1929. It then reopened in 1931 til 1994.
One of the main types of whiskies produced at the distillery was Littlemill, a light traditional lowland whisky. Littlemill is very popular for its light fruity notes, oil, hints of coffee, sweetness, nuts and a variety of other light flavours.

A random fact about Littlemill is that the ‘Hart Brothers released a 20yo bottling of Littlemill to celebrate the Royal wedding of Prince William’ as Serge wrote here:
