Scope and Content Dumbarton and Inverleven distilleries, Dumbarton (West Dunbartonshire council area) These distilleries were founded in 1938 by Hiram Walker and Sons (Scotland) Ltd, the Scottish subsidiary of Hiram Walker-Gooderham and Worts, of Canada. Dumbarton is a grain whisky, and Inverleven (with Lomond) was a lowland malt whisky distillery. This view shows the little traditional mash tun which served both the Inverleven and Lomond stills. Mashing is in progress, with a stream of hot water and crushed malt pouring out of the mashing machine. The open top of the tun was by 1980 unusual. Inverleven Distillery was installed when the grain whisky distillery was built, At a later date a second spirit still with a parallel body and head, known as a Lomond still, was installed, to make 'Lomond' whisky. Inverleven and Lomond closed in 1991. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
