Possibly the same distillery as Auchtergaven, Bankfoot distillery is an anomaly.
Highland single malt Scotch whisky
A small short-lived distillery operated briefly in the large parish of Auchtergaven in Perthshire. Basic OS coordinates place it more specifically at Bankfoot, the parish’s largest village, which lies about 10 miles north of Perth.
One reliable source states it was the same distillery as Bankfoot, which, according to the same source, was at North Barns farm, some distance east of the village. However, it may have in fact been a separate distillery situated on the Garry Burn that then meandered south and was joined by the Ordie and Shochie burns before flowing into the Tay at Luncarty.
Bankfoot village once sat on the main A9 Perth-to-Inverness road but is now bypassed. Appropriately, the Scottish Liqueur Centre, and the recently-opened Aberargie distillery, is located just off the A9 at the southern end of Bankfoot.
Auchtergaven distillery was licensed to Alec Robertson in 1825, and closed later the same year.
