As the night train from London finishes its 11-hour journey to Inverness, the
sleepy-eyed traveller glides by the distillery buildings that once housed
Millburn. It is no longer a distillery, having been closed in 1985 and later
converted with scant tribute to its origins into a pub and steak-house. There
are lss appropriate metamorphoses of course. The city's two other distilleries,
Glen Albyn and Glen Mhor were
razed to make way for shops. Millburn dated at least from the beginning of
licensed distilling in the Highlands and its buildings from 1876, 1898 and 1922.
The whisky has never been officially bottled but has contributed to a vatted
malt called the Mill Burn.
