Extract from Alfred Barnard’s historic tour of every whisky distillery in Great Britain, published in ‘1887’
THE morning of our visit to Ardlussa broke ominously, and the rain poured down in torrents. Fortunately, the establishment is only ten minutes from the Hotel; so we donned our waterproofs and umbrellas, and thus equipped, marched forth defying the elements. We were much impressed with Ardlussa; it is one of the newest works in the town, and was built in 1879.
The make is called Campbeltown Malt, and the output for 1885 was 118,000 gallons. Mr. Hilly is the chief Excise Officer. The Public Offices of the Company are m Glasgow.
