Coleburn Distillery

“Coleburn is another Speyside distillery that didn't survive the 1980's. Located between the Glen Elgin and Speyburn distilleries, Coleburn was founded in 1896 by John Robertson& Sons. They decided to sell it to the Clynelish Distillery Co Ltd. in 1916, who in turn transferred it to DCL (one of their co-owners) in 1925. There were some more changes in ownership until Coleburn was finally closed by DCL in 1985. One year later DCL became part of United Distillers. The license was cancelled in 1992,which means Coleburn will probably remain silent forever.â€Â

I really liked the location of this place, almost totally hidden away with a steep hill on one side and dense forest on another.
There was work being done in one of the buildings when I went, but I’m not sure what it was to do with.
And also the owner of the farm on the hill behind the distillery uses the road through the grounds of the distillery, as I found out when I almost had a tractor drive right into me.

Though there isn’t much of interest inside, there’s very little damage because it’s been secured quite well. Access was easy enough after thinking about it, but it was quite hard leaving it like it was found.

Glenglassaugh Distillery

“Glenglassaugh is a 'coastal' distillery, located on the north coast of Speyside near Banff and Glen Deveron.
The rivers Spey and Deveron flow into the North Sea nearby. Glenglassaugh was founded in 1875. It fell silent from 1907 to 1931 and operated again until 1959. Glenglassaugh was completely rebuilt in 1960 but then it was mothballed again in November 1986. The current owners have no plans for reviving the distillery.â€Â

Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get into the distillery itself here, only a very small cottage on the grounds. The rest seemed sealed up pretty tight except for one warehouse which was wide open and full of barrels. Just as I was leaving I saw a forklift moving stuff from one of the nearby houses into it, so I guess they’re allowed to use it for storage.

I took some external pictures anyway since there were a few interesting things.

As for the third site, it was a failure. And also not really worth of external photos so I’ve left it out.
