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.
Stoneytown distillery was first licensed to Robertson & Co. from 1825-26, before ownership passed to James Sim, or Simm, in 1827.
Sim remained at the helm for around six years, before finally closing Stoneytown in 1833.
