Pitheven distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Pitheven, probably a misspelling of Pitlever or Pitliver, is one of the earliest registered distilleries. OS coordinates place it southeast of Pitliver House and southwest of Dunfermline town centre at a location today known as Mid Mill. Pitheven lay just north of where the A985 road now links the M90 with the Kincardine Bridge and Alloa.

It would have taken its water from the nearby Lyne Burn, which wove a tortuous course south to the Firth of Forth.
