Distillery producing the Deveron malt.
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Today there are two farms, Upper and Lower Inchdrewer, the latter with a large piggery, which sit two miles south-west of Banff with a nearby couple of ponds and a burn that eventually becomes the Backlaw Burn and feeds into the River Deveron. However, no historical details on the onetime distillery, its owner, precise location or even its equipment and its whisky are available. A real mystery distillery.
Inchdrewer distillery was noted as ‘operating’ in 1791, but no name of the distiller or other information has since been recorded.
- 1791 Distillery operating. Dates of opening and closure unrecorded, as is the name of the distiller
