Annandale Distillery

Enjoy a guided tour at this beautiful distillery, taking in the fascinating past with a glimpse into the future. Learn about the unique distillation process, and be among the first to taste Man O’ Words and Man O’ Sword – the Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch whiskies – together with the exceptional Clear Malt Spirit, Rascally Liquor®.

Established in 1836, Annandale was originally one of Scotland’s oldest operating distilleries.


When Annandale Distillery opened, Annan was an established embarkation port for emigrant Scots. As a tribute to these intrepid souls, the ‘A’ of Annandale is in the image of a billowing sail.
Located close to the Scotland-England border, Annandale is also the first (and last) distillery in Scotland. Whilst in the ownership of the famous Johnnie Walker, Annandale Distillery closed in 1918, seemingly forever.

It was rescued by David Thomson & Teresa Church in 2007, and this once derelict distillery sprang back into life on November 3rd, 2014 and three years later, on Wednesday November 15th, 2017, they filled the first ‘new era’ bottle of Annandale Single Malt Scotch Whisky.


They now have two award-winning single cask – single malt whiskies the peated Man O’ Sword and unpeated Man O’ Words. These are both named in celebration of local icons, King Robert the Bruce (Scotland’s Warrior King and 7th Earl of Annandale) and Robert Burns (Scotland’s National Poet and Exciseman in Annandale), respectively.


Go and visit, take a tour, sip their stunning peated and unpeated whiskies and taste the delicious food. They promise you a warm Scottish welcome while enjoying the 5 star awarded visitor experience, bespoke offerings, venue hire, weddings, cask ownership, whisky by the nip, the bottle or the barrel.
