AOC Archaeology begins evaluations within the main distillery building 27th July

2015

 

On Wednesday 29th July we were invited to inspect the holes before they filled them back in. This was just a dig for evaluation purposes and in order to preserve everything (and for Health and Safety reasons) they could not leave open holes. See results.

 

 

 

Experts Comments

"It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of Kennetpans Distillery, founded in the 1720s byJohn Stein  - 'the Father of Commercial Whisky Distilling'. The site is of great importance to the industrial archeological heritage of Scotland. It would be nothing short of a tragedy if the site was left to vanish.”
