Note: The maps below indicate the locations of both working and closed distilleries. A closed distillery is one which has been permanently closed down, probably because it was uneconomical to run at the time of closure. When closure happens, normally the equipment is dismantled and sold off, so it's very unlikely that the distillery could re-open in its usual form. One can only hope that benchmark producers like Rosebank and Port Ellen will one day, in the future, be revived. Thankfully, there are often still rare stocks of whisky from such distilleries maturing in bond which are bottled and later sold, usually by independent bottlers and at premium prices.
