Barrelwell distillery

Highland single malt Scotch whisky

Barrelwell distillery likely sat at Barrelwell farm, which still exists today about a mile west of Brechin in Angus. It stands high on a ridge with no stream or other flowing water source in the vicinity, so the distillery may have drawn its water from a deep well.

Barrelwell History

James Black is the only known licence holder at Barrelwell. It is unclear when the distillery was opened but it certainly closed in 1842 when Black was sequestrated.
