Coleburn Distillery

Region: Highlands
District: Speyside

Coleburn Distillery was built in 1896 by John Robertson and Son, Ltd. It is located a few miles South of Elgin in the heart of Speyside. The distillery successfully experimented with several liquor industry purifying effluents that were to benefit the entire industry in later years. The produce of Coleburn was a staple in the Andrew Usher blends and was a part of the Johnny Walker blends during its more productive years. It ceased operation in 1985 and is not expected to reopen.
