Yetts of Muckhart distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Yetts O' Muckhart is a scattered hamlet in Perthshire threaded with burns and rivulets; the River Devon skirts its eastern flank.

The area was long reputed to be home to Britain's most remote Rolls Royce servicing centre, set up by an enterprising local for the chauffeur-driven cars of guests staying at Gleneagles Hotel, nine miles to the north.

There are several farms and crofts in the area where this distillery might have been, but no such site is marked on older maps, making its exact location hard to ascertain.
