Welcome to Rosebank Whisky
After 25 years of silence… a sleeping giant awakens. Once the beating heart of the Scottish town of Falkirk, Rosebank Distillery produced a whisky that was often described as the ‘King of the Lowlands’ until it's gates closed in 1993. Saved from becoming a footnote in history by Ian Macleod Distillers in 2017, now the painstaking process of restoring and reopening the distillery has begun. Soon Rosebank’s unique combination of worm tub condensers and triple distillation will once again be used to create whisky. Rosebank: A spirit reawakened.
Rosebank Distillery's history on its present site began in 1840 when James Rankine, a local wine merchant, acquired the maltings of the Camelon Distillery, which were on the opposite bank of the canal to the main distillery. Rankine expanded the distillery in 1845 before handing management onto his son R.W. Rankine. Rosebank became a sought-after whisky among blenders, who regarded it as 'top dressing'. The demand was so great that Rankine Jr. was able to charge blenders rent on barrel space while they waited for their order.
