A few weeks ago we had a tour of the new Lakes Distillery (read about it here), so when we heard there was a newly reopened distillery even closer to home, in Annan, we decided to take a trip.
The drive across the Scottish Border and to Annan only took 45 minutes, but was so beautiful that this day trip was worth it even just for the drive. In fact, after our visit to the distillery we decided to carry on and drive along the Solway coast. Just beautiful. Why not go and see for yourself?
This distillery has quite the history, originally established in 1836, making it one of the oldest distillery's in Scotland. 2014, saw it given a new lease of life as it was reopened having being closed since 1918. We enjoyed a very good 45 minute tour of the distillery and learned about the history of the place as well as about the process of making whiskey there today.
After our tour we had lunch in the cafe, which has a simple and delicious menu, as well as an excellent selection of homemade cakes.
All in all we enjoyed our time at the Annandale Distillery and think many of our guests would too. Another great day out!
