Bankfoot distillery

Highland single malt Scotch whisky

Bankfoot distillery was in or close to the Perthshire village of the same name in the 18th century.

One source states Bankfoot and Auchtergaven distilleries are the same, sited at North Barns Farm east of the village of Bankfoot. The village itself being west of the main A9 Perth-to-Inverness road.  

However, North Barns has no running water source, whereas several burns, the Garry, Ordie and Shochie or Glenshauch, all pass through or near Bankfoot village.

Without further information, it is hard to be totally certain about the distillery location.
