Dunfermline distillery

Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

One source gives the distillery’s location as East Port which, with Bridge Street, was then the main east-west artery through the town. No burn or other water sources are nearby, but perhaps process water came from a well. As always, no other information is available.

Dunfermline History

It was licensed in 1795 to Henry Scotland and Co. and survived a remarkable 16 years until the firm was sequestrated in 1811. Its relative longevity may be attributed to two factors: firstly, it probably produced quite good whisky and, secondly, it sat in a town with plenty of nearby pubs and was not too badly affected by smuggled illicit whisky from the north. Other local factors may also have helped.
