Balerno History

Balerno, also spelled Ballarno, distillery was opened in 1825 by Edward Waterson, possibly in partnership with John Wilson, who withdrew soon after start-up.

The distillery was acquired in 1826 by the Balerno Distillery Co., also known as John Fullerton & Co. However by 1830 the company dissolved, and Balerno distillery was closed.
