Looking for information on lost Aberdeen distillieries

Postby JMW » Fri Oct 28, 2011 3:30 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to research the history of three distilleries that used to be in Aberdeen, namely Devanha, Strathdee and Bon Accord.

All I have so far is what i've read in Scotch Missed and Alfred Banyard's book. If anyone has any information, pictures or resource of any kind I'd be extremely grateful!

Thanks,

John

Thanks for the book recommendation Willie JJ, I'll definitely give that a try.

jmrl, you're right - it is Devanha you can see from the train - it's just a shame the lettering on the roof is now gone. I've tried the library and was surprised to find that they've got next to nothing - odd considering that with 3 distilleries, it was once a fairly big industry for the city...
