Revitalised and Renewed

Annandale was founded in Annan in Dumfries and Galloway in 1836

Ostensibly one of Scotland's oldest whisky makers, Annandale was founded in Annan, Dumfries and Galloway, in 1836 by George Donald and operated for around 60 years before being sold to Johnnie Walker in the early 1890s. After over a hundred years of silence in the stillroom, Annandale was purchased in 2007 by Professor David Thomson and Teresa Church, who set about revitalising the distillery.

The distillery setup was overseen by legendary consultant, the late Dr Jim Swan. The team operate wooden washbacks, one wash still and two spirit stills, working to around 250,000 litres a year. Annandale produce both peated (Man o' Sword) and unpeated (Man o' Words) single malt and use both American ex-Bourbon casks and Oloroso Sherry casks for ageing.
