Wallace Paw distillery

Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The exact location of Wallace Paw has been lost to time but there are two residential streets surviving in Bo’ness called Wallace Place and Wallace View. Both sit conveniently close to the Dean Burn, which flows north-westward through Dean Glen to the Firth of Forth. It is possible that the Wallace Paw distillery stood in this area though no maps show its exact location. This is in contrast to the longer lasting Bo’ness distillery, which was widely depicted in maps over the decades.
