Polnach distillery

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Polnach distillery has vanished without trace, however it was listed as Polneach in a 1912 Scottish farms directory, with a Mrs Colin Campbell given as farmer. It stood south of Rosfield (or Rosefield) farm, which remains on current maps, close to the River Nairn and just a quarter of a mile northwest of where Royal Brackla distillery would later be built in 1817.

It is possible some traces of the farm buildings may remain, but Polnach has totally vanished.
