Enzie distillery

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Also spelled Emzie and Engie, Enzie was a rural distillery near the harbour village of Portgordon – then Banffshire, now Moray – from 1827 to 1833.

From vague OS coordinates, it seems the distillery sat about a mile south of Portgordon amid a hamlet of farms, crofts and cottages bearing the name Enzie. It would have sourced its water from the Tynet Burn, or one of its many feeder streams. One near-neighbour distillery that is still going strong today is Inchgower, about a mile away on the main A98 Fraserburgh-to-Fochabers road.
