One of many lost distilleries in Argyll that was operational briefly in the 18th century.
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Grampian Mountains cover hundreds of square miles and are awash with streams, burns and rivers making the exact site of the Wateresk distillery impossible to locate. One faint clue is the suffix ‘Esk’, a possible connection to the North Esk River. The North Esk runs the length of Glen Esk before passing Edzell in Angus and joining other rivers to flow into the North Sea between Montrose and St Cyrus.
Licensed to James Gall in 1798, the closure date of Wateresk distillery is unknown.
