Gaelic "dun deas" - "south fort"
Started off as two separate distilleries both called Port Dundas, they merged in 1877, though they'd had close links from the start. They would have been Malt distilleries to start with as they were established before the invention of the continuous still. The pot stills were still in situ at the time of Barnard's visit in 1885/86, but Coffey stills were installed in both distilleries in 1845. Closed in 2010 when Diageo decided to consolidate their Grain whisky distillation at North British and Cameron Bridge.

Unlike most Grain distilleries, Port Dundas has released own bottlings, but look to independent bottlers for most examples. Should be some casks of this around for a while as was only recently closed.
