MM Distillery profile:
One of the things that sets the Oban distillery apart from most other distilleries is the fact that it's located in the middle of a busy town, overlooking the harbour. Overlooking the distillery itself is an interesting 'folly' - a small 'Collosseum'. It was built during harder times when they had to invent silly projects to provide jobs for the hungry unemployed masses There are some other black pages in the history of Oban. At the end of the 19th century the distillery was briefly owned .
