Annandale Distillery

Annandale Distillery is producing single malt Scotch whisky in Annan in Southern Scotland. The original Distillery was opened in 1830 by George Donald and was later bought by Johnnie Walker in 1893 but was closed down in 1924.

In 2007 the distillery was reopened by the Annandale Distillery Company and in 2014 the Annandale Visitor Centre opened and the first casks were distilled. The first Annandale single malt whiskies will be ready in 2018 under the brands Man O’Sword inspired by the warrior king Robert the Bruce, the 7th Lord of Annandale and King of Scots, and Man O’Words in tribute to Robert Burns, Scotland’s National Bard, who lived in nearby Dumfries.

It’s been a while (90 years in fact) but the re-awakening of Annandale Distillery means that fine Single Malt Scotch whisky now flows again from Dumfries and Galloway. The Distillery has preserved many of its original features and the history of the fantastic site is part of every tour.

Distillery original yard

When Annandale Distillery opened in 1830, Annan was an established embarkation port for emigrant Scots. As a tribute to these intrepid souls, the ‘A’ of Annandale in the logo is in the image of a billowing sail to highlight the pivotal role the local port played in migration. The ethos of this lowland distillery is quite moving with a clear nod to its fantastic history as well as a focus on producing a high quality brand.

Testimonials

Mark and Lesley guided us around some fascinating sites within the region, some of which we did not know were there - even as locals!  The day was informative, relaxed and a great way to see around the wonderful, beautiful part of the world that we live in.

Scotland in a Snapshot

What better way to spend your Monday morning than walking the Solway coastline in the Winter sunshine.

We were invited along to a guided walk from Rockcliffe to Rough Island and were guided by James, a friendly and knowledgeable NTS Ranger.

The weather was just perfect as we walked to Rough Island and we were fascinated to hear the conservation work that NTS are carrying out on the Island and along the Solway Riviera.

James was a fantastic Guide and we would highly recommend others to join one of the many guided walks that NTS have organised over the next few weeks.
