Cabrach distillery

Speyside single malt Scotch whisky

The Cabrach area was rife with illicit distilling in the early 19th century, compelling many legitimate operations to open and then close quite promptly.

Taking its name from the region, Cabrach distillery stood at Haddoch farm, about half a mile north of Upper Cabrach village.

Cabrach History

Cabrach distillery was licensed by James Taylor in 1827 and then by John Taylor, probably his son, in 1831. Cabrach closed in 1834, unable to compete with the many illegal distilleries in the area.

The farm today is abandoned and derelict, as are so many other Cabrach farms and crofts.
