One of the welcome handful of recently revived distilleries, Annandale was mothballed by owner Johnnie Walker in 1919, and closed completely in 1921. In 2007, however, David Thomson and Teresa Church formed the Annandale Distillery Company Ltd and bought the land and buildings associated with Annandale Distillery from local farmer, Robert Robinson. The precarious state of the existing, grade-2 listed buildings and the new buildings required mean there'll be more building than distilling going on for some time, but when whisky production starts the primary expression will be smoky, as it would have been in times past, with a second non-peated expression. They also plan to malt locally grown barley within five years of the commencement of distillation.
