Dunning distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A distillery that lasted a remarkable 15 years in the village of Dunning, which lies in Strathearn in Perthshire about eight miles south-west of Perth, not far off the A9.

Although Dunning, between Auchterarder and Perth, is surrounded by burns, such as the Duncrub, Keltie, Latch and Lawburn, the distillery most likely sat close to the Dunning Burn that runs through the centre of the village. No information on the distillery or its stills and output is available.

Dunning History

The distillery was licensed to William Eadie in 1825 and distilled for a remarkable 15 years until its owner was sequestrated in 1840.

At a time when most new distilleries folded within a year or two, a distillery that lasted 15 years was quite a rarity. However, as with all other early distilleries, information on the buildings, stills, whisky output and other details, is nil.
