Built before the 1823 licensing act being extensively refurbished in 1984. Now the only distillery in Scotland still using the traditional lowland triple distillation method. This method yields less spirit than conventional stills at a higher strength usually about 80% by volume. Although its water comes from a source north of the Highland line it is one of only two working distilleries in the Lowlands of Scotland.
