The North Port distillery was founded in 1820 by David Guthrie a local farmer. In 1893 the distillery became a limited company by the name of Guthrie, Martin & Co which was a partnership of family and bankers. It remained a family run distillery until it was taken over by DCL in 1922. Between 1928 and 1937 and during World War II the distillery lay silent. Following the war production was continued up until 1983 when the distillery was mothballed. Sadly in 1990 it was sold for property development and is now the location of a supermarket.

This malt is sometimes known as  North Port Brechin, Brechin being the city where the distillery was located. Sadly, this once great distillery will never distil again, and bottlings of North Port are becoming hard to find. So if you ever wanted to try North Port whisky don't leave it too long.
