The Teaninich Distillery was established by captain Hugh Munro around the year 1817. Captain Munro was a local land owner and he established this completely legal distillery mainly to put the illegal stills in this area out of business. As with many distilleries it passed through many hands and was improved over time. One large improvement was in 1962 when a new wing, called the A side was added, it had six new stills. The B side, i.e.the old side, was demolished in 1999 and is now an industrial estate.The Teaninich Distillery now produces a 10 year old single malt and whisky for the Johnnie Waker blends.
