Old Photograph Kirkton Burntisland Fife Scotland

Old photograph of Kirkton, Burntisland, Fife, Scotland. The Kirkton area included The Grange Whisky Distillery which started as a brewery in 1767. Six years later, the brewery was converted to a distillery and for almost all its 130 years of operation, it was linked to the Young family of Grange and Colinswell. The distillery was rebuilt in 1806 and in 1813 was licensed to William Young and Co. Distilling at Grange was closed down for the duration of World War I. Production resumed after the war, but ceased totally around 1927.
