Description

The distillery began life as a flax mill and became a Malt Distillery in 1898. It was re-equipped to produce grain whisky around the Second World War. It was then converted back to malt in the 1960s and extended in the 1970s.

The majority of the distillerys output was used for the Vat 69 blend. Althought the distillery is no longer in production, the large drum maltings continue to supply malt to group distilleries.
