Glenfiddich's lowland partner and like Glenfiddich, a component of the Grant's blended whiskies. Unlike Glenfiddich however, Ladyburn was not really intended for consumption as a single malt. As a single malt it is available only from independant bottlers. Ladyburn was a modern distillery opened in 1966 but it had a short life. The distillery was closed in the mid 1970s. An adjoining grain distillery, Girvan, remains.

Michael Jackson's book rates this a very poor whisky. [jhb]
