Said to have been founded in the eighteenth century on the lands of St. Magdalene's Cross, the former site of an annual fair and of St. Magdalene's Hospital. This site accommodated a leper colony in the 12th century, and later a convent, before a distillery was established, possibly in 1765. Production ceased in 1983 and some of the buildings have since been converted into apartments. The distillery has sometimes been known as Linlithgow, after its hometown west of Edinburgh and close to the river Forth. Linlithgow was a centre of milling and malting in the seventeenth century and brewing and distilling in the eighteenth century.
