Producer Information

North Port was opened in 1820 by Townhead Distillery Company, three brothers David, John and Alexander Guthrie. It is said that the distillery takes its name from the North gate in the old city walls of Brechin.
In 1825 Townhead Distillery Company became Guthrie, Martin and Co, it later became a limited company in 1893. The distillery was in production for under a century before it was bough by DCL and WH Holt Ltd. It was then transferred to SMD, it was silent between 1928 from 1937 production began again until it was mothballed in 1983.
All that remains of the distillery is a commemorative plague where the chimney used to stand.
