Balnaguard distillery

Highland single malt Scotch whisky

Located near Ballinluig and Logierait in Perthshire, Balnaguard was doubtless illicit in its origins.

The distillery was hidden near falls on the Balnaguard Burn that flowed past a farm of the same name. The burn continued down to meet the Tay opposite Logierait before its confluence with the Tummel.

Interestingly, a building with no approach road or path is still marked on Ordnance Survey maps: perhaps that is the remnants of this onetime distillery.

Balnaguard History

Balnaguard was first licensed in 1798 to John Reid, but may have started life much earlier in an illicit guise. It didn’t last long once ‘legal’, and closed just a few months after going legit.
