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.
