Situated on the banks of the Forth and Clyde canal close to the River Carron, the distillery has the advantage of being near the main road and a coalfield. The main reason this site was chosen for a distillery as early as 1817 was because of the ‘inexhaustible supply of water’ from the Glenbirnie rivulet, a tributary of the River Carron. It was rebuilt in a modern form in the 1800s and comprises two ranges of buildings divided by the canal.
Rosebank is one of those rare malts that goes through a triple distillation process. This distillery closed in 1993.
