The Rosebank Distillery was situated in Camelon on the banks of the Forth and Clyde canal between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

1817 The origins of the distillery in Camelon are hazy but whisky was distilled here as far back as far as 1817.

Activities of the distillery become clearer in the 1840's and buildings from the 1850's and 60's still survive.

Rosebank Distillery Ltd was formed in 1894

In 1914 it was among the companies that amalgamated to form the Scottish Malt Distillers before the group became part of DCL.

Rosebank was once considered one of the premiere lowland whiskies but the final owner Diageo closed the distillery in 1993.
