Glen Scotia Cask Values & Valuations
Glen Scotia is one of the last surviving distilleries in Campbeltown. Where there used to be 28 distilleries there are now only 3. This puts Glen Scotia casks in a somewhat privileged position and prices can be very high for the right casks.
There are not many casks of Glen Scotia in private ownership, but there are more than some other distilleries so there is a steady trade.
We specialise in the brokerage of Glen Scotia casks and have buyers all over the world ready to put forward a no-obligation offer.
The most desirable Glen Scotia casks are fresh fill sherry oak casks, however, refill sherry casks are also in demand. Bourbon casks (quite common at Glen Scotia) do not command the same premium as sherry casks but can still sell well.

The History of the Glen Scotia Distillery
Founded back in 1832, the Glen Scotia distillery has almost 200 years of heritage behind it and is located in Campbeltown, one of Scotland’s five whisky producing areas. This small town was the whisky capital of the world during the Victorian era and when it was at its height of success during the 1800s the town had no less than 21 different distilleries. Today, there are three distilleries still operating in the town, Glengyle, Springbank and Glen Scotia, and these distilleries are able to give whisky lovers an insight into this once prolific Scottish whisky making region’s history.
When the Glen Scotia distillery was originally founded in 1832 by Stewart and Galbraith And Company it was originally called Scotia. This company were in charge of operations for close to six decades. In 1919, the distillery became one of the West Highland Malt Distilleries’ founding members, bringing together 6 Campbeltown distilleries in an effort to save money and stave off closures. Unfortunately, five out of those six distilleries eventually failed, however just as the future was looking bleak Duncan MacCallum, founder of Glen Nevis purchased the brand in 1924.
Although he closed its doors in 1928, this was only a temporary measure and 1930 saw the distillery reopening once more. Tragically, however, Duncan MacCallum killed himself in the same year after losing his life savings to a scam. The distillery was then purchased by Bloch Bros and Glen was added to its name.This company owned the operation until 1954 when Hiram Walker purchased the estate, but just 12 months later it was then passed on to A Gillies & Co, a blender.
In turn, this became Amalgamated Distilled Products Ltd Scottish arm, supplying bulk and bottled malt under a number of names around the world. Although reconstruction work was carried out during the late 1970s, the Glen Scotia distillery went through a period of closure between 1984 and 1989. It finally reopened under Gibson International’s ownership but in 1994, it was bought by Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouse Ltd and promptly the distillery was once more mothballed.
Five years of intermittent production followed, and in 1999 it finally returned to full production yet it was not until 2012 that a striking new range was launched. In 2014, the Loch Lomond Group bought the brand and there has been significant investment in the site since that time.Today there are just 7 people working at the distillery making it one of Scotland’s smallest whisky operations. Despite this, its annual production level is approximately 500,000 litres.
