Edinburgh

1780 - 1860s

Founded by John Haig, brother of James of Canonmills. In some way the two distilleries were to have not a dissimilar history.

Lochrin folded in the great collapse of 1788 and was reopened in 1795. It was run by both brothers, John & James, until 1810 when it again went into sequestration. It was up and running again from 1821 - 1848 (James Haig & Sons) and was sold to C & D Gray Distillers before eventually ceasing production in 1860 when it became the Lochrin Iron Works - William Bain & Co.

“Kennetpans is an important site in the Historic development of the whisky industry, and for something to survive since 18th century and being an early forerunner in the industrial revolution of Scotland, I agree it should be saved.”
