Distillery Mallet

This tool was used to lift bungs from Whisky barrels in Begg's Bond, Wishaw. The bonded warehouse stored whisky securely for years while it matured. Previously the site had been the Clydesdale Distillery which was established by Lord Belhaven in 1820 and was one of the area's earliest factories.
