Annandale Distillery Comments

Annandale was one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland (established in 1836) but fell into what the current owners term ‘a deep slumber’ in 1918 only to be revived with the first recent production in the historic buildings in 2014. Located in the South West of Scotland it is an integral part of what could be termed a renaissance in distilling in the ‘Lowlands.’

Led by David Thomson, an ex-pat Scot, and Teresa Church, the company undertook a very scientific sensory profiling approach to the design and development of the spirit, with significant input from the late Dr Jim Swan. They describe a significant feature of their process to be a twin spirit still concept to increase the typical ratio of copper surface area to liquid volume. The new owners are eager to emphasise the fact that the original distillery produced a peated malt and the new distillery is producing both peated and unpeated spirit.
