Kersebank (also called Kersiebank), was a distillery in the Falkirk/Polmont area at the end of the 18th century. Owing to vast changes and developments that have altered the area over the 220 years since the distillery existed, pinpointing its precise location is tricky.
Within the general area sat Kerse House, a seat of the Marquis of Zetland, and his estate office, also called Kerse. To the south sat Kerse or Little Kerse Farm, almost at Polmont and today possibly under the M9 motorway. Also today there is a long street called Kersiebank Avenue which passes Grangemouth Stadium. The most likely location of the distillery is near Kerse Farm, which was close to two streams – the Polmont and Grange burns.
Kersebank distillery was founded in 1795 by James Walker & Co., though it ran for just three years.
