Established in 1836, Annandale is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. After closing in 1918 whilst under the stewardship of Johnnie Walker, Annandale Distillery was seemingly lost forever until lovingly restored by David Thomson and Teresa Church (Custodians of The Globe Inn) and finally ‘re-born’ in 2014. Only 17 miles from Dumfries, it’s well worth the trip.
