Inchgower distillery was built in 1871 to replace Tochineal distillery but it was liquidated in 1903. Buckie Council purchased the concern in 1936 and ownership was transferred to Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd in 1938 (now part of Diageo). The distillery is classified as Speyside, yet it is a long way from the region on the Moray Firth, near the fishing port of Buckie. Stylistically it evokes little of the elegant, fragrant Speyside character, it is rather more like a coastal malt. The single malt displays a salty, assertive flavour uncharacteristic of the region. The body is smooth, sweet and malty and the finish dry, delivering the final saltiness. Just 1% of the production is sold as single malt, the remaining part being used in the Bell's (mainly), and Johnnie Walker.
