Owner: Pernod Ricard
Creation year: 1957
The Lochside distillery has been founded by the Mac Nab distillers company on the site of an old brewery (Deuchars & Sons) settled in the town of Montrose in 1957.
The distillery was producing malt and grain whisky up to the early 1970's. The distillery was sold to the Spanish group Domecq who immediately stopped the grain whisky production.
The company Allied Lyons bought the distillery in 1994, and it was mothballed soon after this.
The distillery has been demolished in 2005 and replaced by a garden cent er. The locals thought it would have been better to turn it into a museum about the Distillery`s history...
