Inver House Distillers Limited is a malt whisky distiller, based in Airdrie, Scotland. The company is a subsidiary of ThaiBev, one of the largest alcoholic-beverage companies in South East Asia.

Inver House Distillers owns and operating five distilleries: Old Pulteney Distillery, The Speyburn-Glenlivet Distillery, Balblair Distillery, Knockdhu Distillery and Balmenach Distillery.

HistoryEdit

The company was established in 1964 as a subsidiary of the American company, Publicker Industries of Philadelphia. Publicker Industries had successfully launched Inver House Rare, a brand of blended Scotch whisky in 1956. However, as a result of industry demand, there were not sufficient stocks to meet sales.

Under the chairmanship of Mr S. S. Neuman, a site was acquired at Airdrie in March 1964, and a fully integrated complex was constructed, including 2 malt distilleries—Glenflagler and Killyloch—and a grain distillery Garnheath.

Following the death of the founder, there was a period of decline in the fortunes of the company.[1]

In 1979, Standard Brands acquired Inver House from Publicker.[2] The operations became the subject of a management buyout in January 1988.[1] The company was then sold by the management to Thai Beverages in 2001.
