Campbeltown is seeking images that depict the town’s whisky industry in the mid-19th and early-20th century

The single malt whisky producer is seeking photos that depict the whisky industry during the Victorian period. At the time, Campbeltown was known as the ‘whisky capital of the world’ and housed more than 30 operating distilleries.

Iain McAlister, master distiller and distillery manager at Glen Scotia, said: “The contribution Campbeltown has made to Scotch is incomparable and we are proud to continue to fly the flag for the region around the world.

“Whisky was a way of life in our coastal town for over 100 years and over time, all that experience, craft and passion has been poured into Glen Scotia.

“Now we are looking for photography that will help us uncover what makes Campbeltown the ‘whiskiest place in the world’.”

A select number of images will feature in the 2021 virtual Glen Scotia Whisky Festival, which will connect thousands of whisky fans from across the world through online tours and tastings.

To submit digital and physical photos, email for further details. Glen Scotia is accepting photos until 31 March.
