1825-26 Established beside the Crinan Canal, the distillery first appears as "Robert Hunter, distiller, Glingilp". Pigot's Directory of 1837 suggests the business of Henry Hoey and Co operated the distillery under the name of Glengilp.
1861 The name Glengilp was still being used, now by William Hay and Co. This remained the case in 1878, under William Smyth and Co. The distillery had become Glendarroch by the time of Alfred Barnard's visit, by which point the proprietor was William Gillies and the annual output was 80,000 gallons of malt whisky.
1903 The distillery was by now known as Glen Fyne and owned by William Foulds and Co.
1937 The distillery ceased production though its warehouses remained in use for some years thereafter. The company itself was not dissolved until 2014.
