ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
Based in Alloa, Carsebridge distillery was established in 1799 for the purpose of producing malt whisky and was converted to produce grain whisky in 1852.
At one time, during the 1880's, Carsebridge was Scotland's largest distillery, but the facility was closed in 1983 before being demolished in 1992.
Nowadays the site used as a business park, though some of the original building can still be seen.
Carsebridge single grain whisky is very hard to find, with some old and rare stocks being bottled by The Clan Denny brand of single cask, cask strength single grain whiskies.
