The Story

For a brief period of time, from the early 50’s to early 70’s, Samuel Smith & Son sold a product called Smith’s Imperial Vat Whisky. It was therefore a historic moment when in 1997, Smith’s fired up the old pot still and ran a charge through to produce the Angaston single malt whisky. Two charges took place in 1998 and 2000, before the distillery was de-commissioned in 2001. It was then re-commissioned for a further three charges in 2011, 2014, 2017 and 2021.
