The North British distillery is located in Gorgie, a bustling suburb in the Western outskirts of Edinburgh.
The North British Distillery was founded in 1885, by three Scotch Whisky veterans: Andrew Usher, William Sanderson and John Crabbie. Facilities came on stream for the first time in 1897, producing over 1 million liters of spirit in just 4 months.
Its first full calendar years of work saw output of over 3.6 million liters. While business slowed during the World Wars, surging demand saw investment in the facility, and output in excess of 13 million liters annually by 1961.
Water for the production at North British is drawn from the nearby Pentland Hills. Malted barley and Maize are both used in the malting, the maize being sourced from Southwest France. The make is aged in a combination of oak and Sherry casks and used in a variety of blends across the market.
