The distillery is understood to have been built on what is now Station Road, in Cardross on the Firth of Clyde. It would have been midway between the Geilston and Kilmahew Burns, both good water sources. It is possible a lade or piping was used to draw from one burn or the other.
Cardross distillery opened in 1798 licensed to William Ferrier, but closed the following year.
