MM Distillery profile:
he building depicted at the right isn't the Mosstowie distillery, since that never existed, at least not as a separate set of buildings. Mosstowie was the name of the whisky that was distilled in two 'Lomond Stills' at the Miltonduff distillery between 1964 and 1981. Chapter 4 of the Beginner's Guide provides some backgrounds on the difference between the traditional 'swan neck' stills and the 'Lomond' variety that was introduced .
