Littlemill is closed and demolished.
Littlemill was one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, there are records of excise officers' houses in 1772 (which the distillery claimed as its foundation year), though there have been suggestions of distilling on the site as early as 1750. It had a chequered history with several periods of closure and changes of ownership. Its final owners were Glen Catrine, also owners of Loch Lomond distillery. Littlemill was dismantled in 1997, but there were rumours of potential re-opening until it was destroyed by fire in 2004.

Littlemill produced a few own bottlings, which weren't particularly highly regarded. Since closure the spirit has aged longer and independent bottles are still appearing regularly, though becoming expensive. Littlemill also briefly produced variants known as Dumbuck (after a local farm) and Dunglass (after a nearby ruined castle).
