With its origins dating back to 1871, the Inchgower distillery was founded by Alexander Wilson before being purchased by Arthur Bell and Sons (now owned by Diageo) in 1938. This has led to 99% of the distillery's output being used in blended whiskies, particularly the UK’s most popular: Bell’s.
Single malt bottlings are very rare, meaning that its releases tend to be met with excitement among whisky fans. The only easily available official release is the famous Flora and Fauna collection by Diageo.
In 2006 Diageo performed major renovation works on the distillery including installing an automated closed yeast pitching system in order to help meet the enormous demand for Speyside blended whiskies.
