Glengyle Distillery Comments
The stills at Glengyle are second hand and were originally used at Ben Wyvis distillery.
Kilkerran is the name of the single malt produced at Glengyle Distillery as the name Glengyle is already used for a blended Highland malt and Mitchell’s Glengyle Ltd were unable to purchase the brand name.
