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 stillhouse of Inverleven Distillery, with the cylindrical head of the Lomond still, which made its own distinctive whisky from low wines produced by the Inverleven wash still. This increased the range of flavours in the firm's blends. 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.
