Converted in 1772 from a 1750s brewery, Littlemill is another lost Lowlands distillery, having been located in West Dunbartonshire.

A 1992 vintage Littlemill from independent bottlers Berry Bros & Rudd as part of their Berry's Own Selection series.

A 1991 vintage whisky from closed, and since burned down and demolished, Littlemill, released by Douglas Laing for their Old Malt Cask range of single cask whiskies. This one was distilled in November 1991, matured for 21 years in a refill hogshead and then bottled in February 2013.
A rare 1988 vintage Littlemill from independent bottlers Berry Brothers and Rudd. Littlemill was in fact mothballed from 1984 to 1989, so we presume this came from the small amount of test distillation they would have been doing at the time to keep the equipment in working order. The distillery closed for good in 1992 and bottlings are becoming harder to find.

Claiming to be the Scotland's first whisky distillery, founded in 1772, it was located in the village of Bowling, to the west of Glasgow and closed in 1992. As with other closed distilleries, bottlings are becoming ever-rarer and more sought after.
