Rosebank Distillery

  • Rosebank distillery established in 1840, by James Rankine. Its name originated after the roses which grew along the side of the canal.

  • Whisky distillery from Lowlands region in Scotland.

  • Was produced Single Malt Whisky & had capacity ≈ 500-600.000 litres per annum.

  • The distillery is closed & owned by Ian Macleod Distillers from October 2017 – present.

  • Distillery was closed officially on Friday 1st January 1993. The reason was the reluctance of the then owner, to pay an estimated £2 million cost of upgrading its effluent treatment plant. Problems over road access were another contributory factor. In 2017, Ian Macleod Distillers purchase the distillery from British Waterways and Rosebank brandname, from Diageo. Distillery will reopen over the next few years by Ian Macleod Distillers, up to £12m will be invested over & is expected to be operational again by 2019 at the earliest. Below in the picture a proposal for building permit for the re-builiding of the Rosebank distillery? Ok, who knows, but looks beautiful and certainly modern.
