Braelangwell History

Braelangwell distillery was opened in 1826 by George Andrews, but he was sequestrated in 1831. Not one to give in, Andrews managed to reopen Braelangwell and operated it until 1843, when he was sequestrated yet again.

An 1882 Scottish gazetteer describes Braelangwell as ‘an estate and distillery in Kirkmichael Parish, East Ross-shire’. Braelangwell mansion still exists today and operates as a bed and breakfast.
