Lochside Distillery was operating in the port of Montrose in Eastern Highlands, on site of James Deuchar Brewery. It started distilling grain whisky in 1957 and then added malt whisky, which became main component of Sandy MacNab’s blend. In 1974 the distillery was acquired by the Spanish company Destilerias y Crianza. The Spaniards removed continuous still and concentrated on malt whisky production, with most of the output going into Spanish blends. After couple of mergers Lochside became part of Allied Domecq and stood no chance during downturn of the 1980s. The distillery was mothballed 1992 and buildings were demolished in 2005. Lochside single malt was never widely available, from time to it appeared in Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice range.
