Founded in 1897, it wanted to start production during Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee, but failed for a few months. It was the first distillery to use Drum Malting (a mechanical steam system with rotating cylinders), the owners John and Edward Hopkins sold it in 1916 to DCL (like many distilleries it was suspended during the First World War) reactivated but then closed in 1930 until 1934, it was still suspended during the Second World War. After the conflict it was reactivated and productive to this day. Curiosity: to the locals it is known as “The Gibbet”: a term once synonymous with gallows, but also used to indicate an area where a part of a criminal’s body was exposed after the execution

It is sometimes described as Scotland’s most photographed distillery

From 1939 to 1947 it housed two Scottish artillery regiments
