Mac Nab Distilleries Ltd
The Lochside distillery was founded
in 1957 by the Mac Nab Distilleries Ltd
on the site of the once the well known
James Deuchar brewery. The distillery
produced both malt and grain whisky up
to the early 1970's. The distillery was
then sold to the Domecq who immediately
stopped the grain whisky production.
Since 1973 much of the malt
produced went into the Distilieras
y Crienza blended whisky, a major
product in Spain.
Allied Lyons bought the
Lochside distillery in 1994, and it was
mothballed soon after this. The land was
sold and the distillery was completely
demolished in 2005 and replaced by a
garden centre. Lochside single malt was
mostly bottled by independent bottlers
and is only available from specialist
whisky shops such as
The Whisky Exchange.
Lochside Tasting Notes
10 Year Old Single Malt.
A subtle and delicate nose with a hint
of peat. The flavours included a vanilla
sweetness with echoes of the peat,
initially found in the nosing.
