Inchgower Whisky Distillery History.
Inchgower Distillery constructed as a replacement for the Tochineal distillery (1824) near Cullen. Closed due to a shortage of water.
Alexander Wilson, the nephew of John Wilson the founder of Tochineal distillery, built Inchgower distillery in 1871 at Rathven one and a half miles east of Buckie. To ensure a plentiful supply of water from the Letter burn and Aultmore springs.
The new distillery considered to be a model distillery in those days.
When Alfred Barnard visited in 1885 he observed. “ is of handsome elevation… the buildings which are of stone and slate are erected in the form of an oblong quadrangle and cover nearly four acres of ground…. A modern work, and is fitted up with all the latest improvements of machinery and vessels.”
