Coleburn Distillery was built
in 1896. It lies to the east
of the River Lossie between Elgin and
Rothes. The location was chosen for the
water supply and the Great Northern
Railway which ran close by. In 1916 the distillery was bought
by the Clynelish Distillery Company which
then became part of DCL in 1930. It became
a key component of Usher’s blends and also
contributed to Johnnie Walker blends. Coleburn
was mothballed by the present owners in
1985. Most of the original buildings
remain but it is unlikely that the
distillery will produce whisky again.
Coleburn was only a small distillery
producing small amounts of malt and
bottlings of Coleburn malt whisky are
becoming harder to find as time goes on.
So if you have ever fancied trying this
malt you had better not leave it too
long as the distillery has been closed
for 20 years now and bottlings are
becoming quite rare.
