Stoneytown distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Early Aberdeen documents refer to Stoneytown (also spelled Stonytown) as a large dam and reservoir on the Denburn that supplied the brewery and factories in the Gilcomston area.

Another source describes it as a small farmstead and row of cottages in the town’s western area. However, no maps from the time contain the words Stoneytown or Stonytown, or any reference to a distillery, while a myriad of new streets and buildings erected over nearly two centuries have altered the area beyond recognition.
