Lochside distillery started life as a brewery and the actual buildings were built in 1781. James Deuchar & Sons Ltd., a Newcastle upon Tyne based brewery owned the building during the 19th Century. The brewery was closed in 1957 and purchased by Macnab Distilleries Ltd. The brewery was converted into a distillery and produced both malt and grain whisky.
Macnab Distilleries Ltd was purchased by Spanish whisky manufacturer Destilerías y Crianza del Whisky S.A. in 1973. They were in turn purchased by British drinks company Allied Distillers to form Allied Domecq, who were purchased by Pernod Ricard in 2005.
The distillery was closed during 1992, dismantled in 1997 and the site earmarked for redevelopment, it was finally demolished during 2004-2005 and the site has been turned into housing.
