About the distillery

The Caledonian grain whisky distillery was founded by Graham Menzies & Co. in 1855 as ‘Edinburgh’.  In 1884 the Menzies company merged with DCL. Even though Caledonian operated with just one Coffey still, it was Scotland’s largest whisky distillery for a few years. The distillery was located west of Edinburgh, north of Edrington's North British distillery which is located a little to the south. Both of these distilleries could be found in the Lowlands on the imaginary line between Glenkinchie and Saint Magdalene.

Caledonian was closed by UDV in 1988. The buildings were demolished in 1998.
