About Ailsa Bay A distillery operated by William Grant & Sons (they also produce Glenfiddich and Balvenie single malts), Ailsa Bay is designed to be the malt workhorse of the brand's blends. The sixteen stills at Ailsa Bay are identical to Balvenie's and produce unpeated, lightly-peated, and heavily-peated malts. These stills are married to custom-made condensers, which allow the distiller to vary how the spirit cools after distillation. This extra level of control allows for a greater variance in the style of malts Ailsa Bay can produce.
