Campbeltown: The Birth of a Whisky Capital (Part 1)

October 26, 2021

Step back to the very origins of scotch whisky, to an area that was once hailed as the Whisky Capital of the World.

We'll track the first Gaels from Ireland, meet the Lord of the Isles, and learn about a town that was one an ancient capital of Scotland called Dalruadhain, evolved into Lochend, and then boasted the largest collection of distilleries featured in one town, in the history of the British Isles. It's a lot of whisky and a lot of history in this two part journey.
