Here’s what happens when 200 years of crafted whisky distilling is reimagined.

Take the charm and provenance of the country’s most southerly scotch whisky distillery, with the experience of one of the longest standing whiskey productions in Scotland for single malt whisky, then add the optimism and boldness of new global thinking and you have the new Bladnoch Scotland Whisky Distillery.

Reimagined but respectful. New thinking with old expertise. It’s a place where fine Lowland Scotch Whisky has flowed for two hundred years. You can sense it in the deep bluestone walls of the Mash House, the Tun Room and the Dramming Room and you can feel it rising out of the pure waters of the Bladnoch River.

This is the place where Scotch Whisky is being redefined. Read More...

David Prior

Owner & CEO

David has a prodigious passion for whisky together with a strong desire to restore the heart and soul of the local community. He purchased Scotland’s 200-year-old Bladnoch Distillery in 2015.
His personal philosophy;
“Early mornings. Deep stretches. The crash of a wave. The view from the clouds. The silence of thought. The noise of success. The rules broken. The limits pushed. Good company. And a great drink.”
Is what brings enjoyment in life and together with his business ethics, the Bladnoch brand is enjoying a brand new bold, powerful and very exciting revival.
David brings a new passion and path for Bladnoch and its ever growing history.
