Bridgend distillery

Highland single malt Scotch whisky

The urban distillery of Bridgend was probably somewhere in the Perth district, east of the Tay. This makes it one of 11 lost distilleries in the Perth area.

Bridgend was said to be a single-still distillery, one of the first in a city that eventually boasted three of the greatest names in Scotch whisky – John Dewar, Arthur Bell and Matthew Gloag. It also sat not far from one of Perth’s more enduring distilleries, Isla.
