Rountree Bank distillery

Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Dunbartonshire distillery Rountree Bank was located on the west side of Main Street, Alexandria, just below the junction with Upper Bridge Street. To this day, a house called Rowan Tree Bank remains on the site. The distillery would have been either attached to the house or close to it.

No watercourse is mapped in the area, but as it was a small distillery, it is possible water was sourced from a well, as almost every house at that time had one in its back garden.
