About Port Dundas distillery

The Port Dundas distillery was a historic landmark in the city of Glasgow. Built in 1811, it sat at the highest point in the city, next to the banks of the Forth & Clyde Canal. With its good transport links and prime location in the city, which had become the blending centre of Scotland, Port Dundas grew in size to become Scotland’s largest distillery. By 1885, its three Coffey and five pot stills were producing over two million gallons a year.

But in 2010 its owner Diageo decided to concentrate its grain whisky production at its Cameronbridge distillery. Although there were offers from rival distillers to buy Port Dundas they fell through – possibly due to the potential cost of upgrading the distillery. In 2011, production stopped and the site was demolished. Glasgow’s landmark was lost, and Port Dundas faded into history as a “ghost distillery”.

Our twin casks from Port Dundas pay tribute to this lost landmark with a label that reflects two of Glasgow’s landmarks today - the Glasgow University, and the statue of the Duke of Wellington, with his infamous traffic cones (a long running joke amongst Glaswegians). We’ve kept both releases as single casks, bottled all-natural at cask strength, so you can try Port Dundas whisky in its purest form.

What about taxes?

All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs. 

Which couriers do you use?

In the UK we use Royal Mail, Parcelforce and APC. US orders are sent via UPS. International orders use FedEx and DHL.
