Lost 19th century distillery that was once operational near Muthill, Perthshire.
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Fintalich was one of the many legal distilleries established in the Muthill and Crieff areas of Perthshire. Its name is also given as Fintallich, Fentalich and (in several sources) as Lochlin. However, Lochlin was a completely separate distillery with no ascertainable links between the two.
This distillery was based at Fintalich Farm, about half-a-mile north of Muthill and two miles west of Drummond Castle, with a burn onsite that fed into the Drummond Burn. It survived 23 years, in what were often adverse times, from 1814 to 1837 under John Comrie, who is registered both as John Comrie and John Comrie and Co. The farm buildings are still there today and now house a cattery. A case of from whisky to whiskers?
Distilling started in 1814 under John Comrie, who may at some point have re-registered as John Comrie and Co., although no exact dates are known. The distillery closed in 1837 but the farm still exists today.
