The History Of Strathmill
Strathmill is founded, not as a distillery but a cornmill.
Inspired by the whisky boom going on around them, the owners convert the mill into a distillery. At this time, it trades under the name Glenisla-Glenlivet, perhaps named for the river Isla which runs past the foot of the building.
Gin makers W & A Gilbey buy the distillery and change the name to Strathmill.
Gilbey merges with United Wine Traders to make International Distillers & Vintners.
A second pair of stills is added to the distillery.
