My great-great grandfather, Robert Thorne, at age 17 in 1823 licensed this distillery near Glasgow. Later, with his sons, he bought and operated other distilleries of Scotch single-malt whisky, notably at Aberlour.

German sort of name, though I suppose it depends on the accent. Not much left.

Anna, yes, it's good.

I think without knowing my 'heredity' involvement, I would consider this another one of many single-malt Scotch whiskies beyond my budget, since my tastes are not especially demanding.

My heredity also involves me with Aberlour and Glen Moray in the Highlands (Auchentoshan is Lowland), and the now-lost Greenock, all single-malt Scotch whiskies. One can google 'Robert Thorne and Sons Whisky', for more information.
