Strathisla Scotch whisky distillery was built in 1786 making it one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. Originally known as The Milton Distillery, it sources its water from the Fons Bulliens Well, which in turn is fed by Broomhill Spring. The same spring was used by Dominican monks in the 13th century for brewing beer.
