Diageo's Cameron Bridge distillery in Fife has a long and distinguished history, dating back to 1824 when it was actually founded by John Haig. Although not well known, this is a vitally important part of the distilling industry and has recently seen an increase in capacity.

This is a grain whisky, which gets overshadowed by single malt, however in the Scotch Whisky industry, it's vital due to its being the basis of blending. Brands such as the Famous Grouse, Ballantine's and Johnnie Walker rely on grain whisky.
