Strathclyde is a grain whisky distillery built, as the name might suggest, on the banks of the river Clyde in the Gorbals area of Glasgow. Strathclyde started life in 1927 as a gin distillery, switching to grain whisky in the 1930s after owners Seager Evans bought the Long John blended whisky brand and the Glenugie distillery.

Strathclyde is one of several grain whisky distilleries which have also been home to a malt whisky facility at one time, hosting the short-lived Kinclaith distillery’s two pot stills onsite for new owners Schenley Industries between the late 1950s and 1975. In the course of a subsequent ownership merry-go-round, Strathclyde was sold in 1989 to Allied Lyons, whose successor Allied Domecq was acquired by Pernod Ricard in 2005. The distillery is now part of Pernod’s Chivas Brothers operation, making grain whisky principally for the Ballantine’s blend.

Càrn Mòr is a series of independent bottlings from Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers (MSWD), the family company run by Brian Morrison, the former chairman of Morrison Bowmore, and his son Jamie Morrison. The company also owns the Old Perth blended whisky brand and commenced distillation at their new Lowland distillery Aberargie in 2017.

The first Càrn Mòr whiskies were bottled in 2007/8 and the Morrisons keep up a prolific bottling schedule, with several hundred Càrn Mòr releases to date. As of 2023, Càrn Mòr have two main ranges, the Càrn Mòr Strictly Limited series of youngish small batch whiskies bottled at 47.5%, and the Càrn Mòr Celebration of the Cask series, the majority of which are much older single cask whiskies bottled at cask strength.

DISCLAIMER

Although a condition report is normally included in the Lot description, we do recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the form below "Ask A Question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise, Lots will be sold as seen and described.
Please note: due to the various ages of bottles, corks and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion. And no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.All bottles are checked by our whisky specialists Wayne & Harrison Ormerod prior to any auction. We do not auction opened bottles so therefore all items are sealed unless stated under certain circumstances where seals were never issued by the producer.
No item is deemed new, however many items are generally in good condition. When this is not the case, we aim to mention any faults in the description. The images supplied are of the actual item you will receive. If the filling level of the liquid is not visible in the images provided, we aim to indicate the current position in the description. If the filling level is impossible to determine, such as with ceramics decanters, we will provide an overall weight of the decanter in KG. Our filling level guideline can be found here.
All information in this listing is provided to the best of our knowledge including when we chose to date the age of a bottle.
