A small Perthshire distillery that flowered and withered in the early 19th century.
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This rural distillery in Auchtergaven parish, Perthshire, not far from Gillybanks distillery, lasted barely three years under two operators.
The distillery stood near the Wynnie Burn, about two to three miles west of Bankfoot on what was then probably a farm but is today shown on maps as just a house called The Glack.
Glack distillery was noted as ‘operating’ in 1816-17, before being licensed to Alexander Roy and Co. in 1818-19. It was finally licensed to John Fisher and Co. in 1821 before closing forever.
