About Annandale

The whisky distillery Annandale resides near Annandale, Dunfries and Galloway in Scotland. It belongs to the whisky region of the Lowlands. The distillery has been founded 1830 by George Donald. Already three years later it has been sold to John Gardner. In the year 1893, Annandale has been sold to Johnnie Walker. The preliminary end of the distillery came 1924: Annandale has been closed down and the area has been sold to a farmer.


The second area for Annandale appears 2007 when David Thomson and Teresa Church bought the estate of Annandale. The buildings have been renovated and the equipment has been reconstructed. At the 15.11.2014 the distillery reopened and the first cask of whisky has been filled.


Annandale is equipped with a 2,5 Tonnes semi-lauter mash tun from Forsysth’, four 12.000 liters wooden washbacks, one wash pot still with a capacity of 12.000 liters and two spirit still with a capacity of 4.000 liters. 


It is planned to produce two difference kinds of whisky: a peated one and a none peated one. There are different low wine receivers and spirit receivers, so that the two kinds of whisky are not mixed up. 


The distillery is open for visitors. Guided tours are offered. Also a café and a shop are available. The first bottles of whisky from Annandale are expected to be on market in 2017.

This really is a phoenix from the flames, a really nice location and a beautiful looking Distillery. Had a fantastic tour around the place and there has been some big investment, the whole Distillery has been laying dormant for many, many years and there has been no expense spared getting this back to it's former glory, no single malt until the end of the year but we did taste some of their spirit. Highly recommend checking this place out, it has a bright future ahead.

Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?

Very nice and "new" distillery. Off course no whisky yet, bought the samples of the spirit.

Still closed (May 2014) for visitors. We had a special treatment and could have a wee look. It's looks absolutely fabulous. Red stone outside and one of the most beautiful still houses I have ever seen.

When it's open it is a must see!
