Glenrothes

In 1868, James Davidson sold his Macallan distillery to James Stuart. In 1875, James Stuart formed a partnership with Robert Dick, William Grant, both agents of the Caledonian Bank in Rothes, and John Cruickshank, a solicitor from Elgin, Moray. The four men established the firm of James Stuart & Co to improve the Macallan distillery. In 1878, they decided to build a new distillery in Rothes, Moray, however the development was threatened by the collapse of the City of Glasgow Bank.

The result was the suspension of business at the Caledonian Bank and consequently the partnership was dissolved in 1878. James Stuart retained the Macallan distillery. Whilst William Grant, John Cruickshank and Robert Dick formed William Grant & Co, and continued with the construction of the new Glenrothes distillery and in May 1879, the Glenrothes Distillery went into production.
