Founded in 1821, Linkwood only began producing its whiskey in 1825. Located in Speyside, it remained in the hands of the Brown family until the end of the 1960s before being destroyed and then rebuilt in 1872. Like many distilleries, it fell into the hands of Scottish Malt Distillers in 1933 and actively participated in the development of many blends including Johnnie Walker, White Horse, Haig, Bell’s. The majority of existing single malt versions are made by merchants, including Gordon & MacPhail, which offers several versions aged in sherry casks or Signatory Vintage. An official bottling was introduced at the end of the 90s: Linkwood 12 years Fauna & Flora as well as some versions under the Rare Malts range.
