BOLD GALLOWAY SPIRIT
FROM THE OLDEST INDEPENDENTLY OWNED SCOTCH WHISKY DISTILLERY

They’ve tried. Those ‘twists and turns of fate’ have been persistent; never letting us be. But despite the challenges, Bladnoch still is. Because in this remote corner of Scotland, there’s a Galloway (Machars) spirit at work. Always facing forward. Always innovating. Always drawing on past lessons to shape the future. Guided by that irrepressible spirit, a bold diverse approach, joy in our work and unflinching honesty – our taste-first, Lowland whisky-making carries on…

DAVID PRIOR

THE OWNER

David Prior’s prodigious passion for Scotch Whisky, together with a strong desire to restore the heart and soul of the local community led him to purchase Scotland’s over 200-years-old Bladnoch Distillery in 2015.

His 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 his life and under his leadership, Bladnoch Distillery is enjoying a bold, powerful and exciting revival.
