Glen Flagler Pure Malt is in effect a blended malt bottled under the label of Mason & Summers (once a subsidiary of Inver House Distillers Ltd.). This company was better known for its blends such as Auld Shepp, Golden Glen Glen Orson and Orson. It was acquired by the India-based Katra Group in 2013 but by then the Glen Flagler name had long since disappeared.

This blended malt was for the Italian market and this is revealed by the Italian tax stamp and the name on the label of the importer, Gruppo Rinascente, which owns a famous chain of department stores across Italy.

This product is located in the United Kingdom.

Distillery

Glen Flagler/Garnheath Distillery

Classified as a Lowland distillery, Glen Flagler was a hybrid pot still operation within the old Moffat complex, which also produced Garnheath grain whisky. Glen Flagler was bottled by the distillery and by independent merchants. The Moffat distillery complex was set up in 1964 by Inver House Distillers, a subsidiary of Publicker Industries Inc., in the USA. Malt whisky distilling commenced in February, 1965 and continued until 1982.  There were 6 pot stills operating technically as two separate distilleries, one making Glen Flagler, and Glen Moffat, a heavier version of Glen Flagler and the other making Killyloch, and Islebrae.
