The Port Charlotte Distillery was built in 1829, constructed for its first licensee, Colin Campbell. It was formerly known as the Lochindaal distillery and it passed through a number of different owners before closing in 1929. The buildings however survived and are currently in use by a local garage, the Islay youth hostel and field centre. The bonded warehouses on the hill behind the distillery are in use by the Bruichladdich distillery.
There are plans to revive the distillery, which is currently owned by Bruichladdich.
The picture to the left is the Port Charlotte Buildings that are still there today.
The picture above is of the distillery before it was closed. If you look closely you can see the building in the picture to the left, in the original picture above - it is quite close to the center of the picture above.
