Carsebridge is one of Scotland’s many gone-but-not-forgotten grain distilleries, founded right at the end of the 1700s by John Bald in Alloa.
Initially Carsebridge produced malt whisky, but after a few decades production was switched over to grain whisky due to the rising popularity of blends in Scotland.
Like a good number of Scottish distilleries, Carsebridge closed in 1983, despite rather recent expansions. Much of the distillery has been demolished and bottlings of Carsebridge’s whisky are scarce (though delicious!).
Independent bottlings are few and far between.
