Carsebridge
Distillery
Founded in 1799
Carsebridge sat in the town of Alloa, by the River Forth, as it spills out into the Firth of Forth. This is about 20 miles west-by-northwest of Edinburgh, on the east coast of Scotland.

Carsebridge distillery was founded in 1799, by John Bald & Co. Interestingly, it spent its first half century as a single malt distillery. But they switched to grain distillation due to the rising popularity of blends, and a surge in demand for relatively neutral grain spirits.

Sadly, the facility was mothballed before its 84th birthday in 1983. Nothing was maintained, and the facility was abandonded. In 1992, the place was stripped for scrap and the buildings were demolished.

Carsebridge has one claim to fame: it was one of the first to use the variable, continuous Coffey stills, which greatly increased output.
About
Lowlands
Perching just above England, the Lowlands can play truant from peat or salinity. 

Triple distilled malts are characteristic of the region, offering a gentle, elegant palate reminiscent of grass, honeysuckle, cream, ginger, toffee, toast and cinnamon.

The Lowlands are master of the Whisky blend and are also known for their silent stills, which sadly no longer produce.
