Whisky entrepreneur Alexander Edwards also of Benrinnes and Dallas Dhu Fame. Established the distillery and building commenced in 1895. Opening in 1896 the distillery went well immediately, – so much so, that extensions were built just two years later and production was doubled.
Alexander Edwards bought Oban distillery in the same year and made the two distilleries into a single limited company.
