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