People and places don't just shape a Single Malt Scotch Whisky's flavour. They change the course of its future. Get a taste of how the whisky you love today came to be, with this brief Inchgower timeline.
Inchgower starts life as Tochieneal, a distillery built near Cullen by local factor, Alexander Wilson.
Alexander Wilson’s nephew - confusingly called Uncle Sandy - builds a thriving business, but is forced to suspend operations when a doubling of the rent makes the small premises uneconomic to operate.
Uncle Sandy moves to the coast where the rent is lower, and Inchgower is born, as a model distillery.
Walter Wilson, Alexander's great, grand-nephew, takes over as managing director.
The company celebrate their centenary on 12th July 1922.
Around this time Alexander Wilson & Co Ltd goes into receivership and Inchgower is bought by Buckie Town Council for £1,000.
The council sell the distillery to Arthur Bell & Sons
Around this time capacity is doubled with the addition of two stills.
