Bridgend distillery

Islay single malt Scotch whisky

The hamlet of Bridgend is located at the top of Lochindaal and is the site of Islay’s key road junction. Precisely where in the area the distillery stood is unknown, but it would have been somewhere beside the River Sorn, which flows through the village on its way to Lochindaal.

Bridgend History

Bridgend distillery was listed as operating in 1818, under an unnamed distiller. From 1821 it was licensed to D. McEachran Jr. and Co.

The firm was sequestrated in 1822 and the distillery subsequently closed, its short life so often the fate of many early 19th century operations.
