Towiemore 1898 - 1931
Towiemore lay in the flatlands of a cultivated valley between the distinguished whisky towns of Dufftown and Keith. The name is thought to derive from either Gaelic ‘Tulach’ (hillock) or ‘Toll’ (a hollow/hole) and ‘Mor’ (large or big). This is potentially in reference to the deep quarry area through which the Towie Burn,a water-source claimed exclusively for the distillery, flows as a tributary to the river Isla. Towiemore Distillery was developed to straddle the Keith & Dufftown railway, built in 1862, with two acres of land specifically stipulated for the Great North of Scotland Railway Company (GNSR) to build a siding.
Built as the 1890s whisky boom came to a halt, Towiemore existed in one of the most tumultuous periods for the whisky business. Within weeks of Towiemore’s completion, the whisky industry was beginning to show signs of failure. The Pattison crash of 1899, instigated by the collapse of the influential Pattisons Ltd, left a web of broken businesses throughout the whisky industry. It destroyed consumer confidence in the blending industry, casting doubt on its legitimacy, and was a major financial scandal. Distillers, merchants and investors caught in the excitement of the boom could only scramble to save what they could of the industry, but for many businesses old and new the damage was too severe.
Nevertheless, Towiemore distillery was taken under the control of the Towiemore-Glenlivet Company Limited, with Peter Dawson as its Director. Towiemore- Glenlivet was incorporated as a joint-share company on the 25th November 1898 with a capital of 50,000 shares at £1 each. These shares were split into 25,000 fixed preference shares and 25,000 ordinary. The success of Towiemore’s flotation was viewed as a notable success for the period, due in part to the relatively small amount of shares released.
The whisky industry was undergoing a necessary retraction after many years of over-production and over-competition, and many distilleries were viewed as expendable. In this climate of contraction Towiemore was clearly vulnerable. Five years after its amalgamation with DCL, Towiemore-Glenlivet Company tendered its declaration of insolvency on the 1st July 1930 as part of a voluntary winding up petition. By this point, Towiemore was one of 26 Highland distilleries owned by SMD, 44 malt distilleries in total plus 7 associated. SMD took control of all stocks and equipment as part of the liquidation process.
This included £5,065/6/3 in stocks and £22,865/19/0 in cash with a total asset value of £30,640/12/18 absorbed by SMD.

The Lost Distillery Company ist die Idee von Scott Watson und Brian Woods, wie John Glaser ehemalige Mitarbeiter von Diageo. Sie zeigten sich beeindruckt von der Tatsache, daß in den letzten beiden Jahrhunderten mehr als 100 Scottish distilleries untergegangen waren, teils aus finanziellen Gründen, teils weil sie nicht optimal geführt wurden. Es mögen sie auch die zum Teil die Möglichkeiten, welche diese zum Teil bis heute klangvollen Namen boten beeindruckt haben. Mit der Hilfe des schottischen whisky expert Michael Moss,  Wird bei der Firma nach den Aromenprofilen der vergangenen distilleries geforscht, den Arten von stills und der Gerste die verwendet wurden oder den Destillationstechniken um den deren Produkt wieder auferstehen zu lassen. An sich lobenswert, aber nicht als kommerzielle Idee - niemand weiß, wie diese whiskies geschmeckt haben, daher kann man alles re-kreieren. Wenigstens geben Watson und Woods zu, daß die whiskies keine exacten Re-Creationen sonder eher “modern interpretations” sind und einen “look into the past” darstellen. Um so besser, das erhöht die Spielräume wesentlich.
