Strathclyde Distillery was established in 1927 on a site which had previously supported mills in Moffat Street by the south bank of the River Clyde in the heart of Glasgow. Strathclyde Distillery is a Lowland grain whisky distillery equipped with two Coffey continuous stills for grain whisky production and also a further five Coffey continuous stills which produce neutral spirit. Loch Katrine situated amongst the hills to the north of Glasgow provides the water. In 1957 Kinclaith malt distillery was constructed within the Strathclyde Distillery complex but closed in 1975 and was dismantled the following year.
