Licensed in 1826, it had already been producing spirit illegally for many years by that time - according to the legend, it was founded by Magnus Eunson, a church officer and notorious smuggler. It remained in family ownership until, in 1869, inheritor James Borwick came to feel that being a priest and a distiller were incompatible: he opted to remain a priest, and the distillery was sold off.
