Campbell and Clark were/are blenders and exporters based in Glasgow. Started in 1934, they were a subsidiary of Train and McIntyre Ltd; who were associated with Joseph Hobbs; he had a very colourful history during the years of American prohibition, running whisky for Teacher's aboard his ship 'Littlehorn'. He was also an agent for Distillers Company Limited (DCL) in Canada. Hobbs returned to Scotland in 1931. He acquired and ran a number of distilleries in association with National Distillers of America though Train and McIntyre. Included in these distilleries was Glenlochy in Fort William, which was bought by Train and McIntyre in 1937 and transferred in 1938 to another subsidiary, Associated Scottish Distilleries. In 1953 DCL bought Train and McIntyre and their assets including Campbell and Clark and the company became defunct
However, in 1970 Campbell and Clark were reconstructed with American interests in the form of Sazerac Co. Inc. of New Orleans. The operation was fairly modest, purchasing new make whisky from a variety of Scottish distilleries and maturing it in their own warehouses before blending, bottling and/or exporting mainly to the US.
As far as I know the company is no longer trading and never had any connections with Glen Mhor.
