The distillery was in the town whose name it bore, on the coast, west of the mouth of the river Deveron. The distillery, established in 1824, rebuilt on a different site in 1863, and again in 1877 ,and damaged by a bomb in the Second World War, was the subject of much folk history. None of this prevented it from being closed by its owners (then the Distillers Company Limited) in 1983 and dismantled.
