Lochside Distillery began life as a brewery in the 1890s. It was rebuilt on the site of an earlier brewery which is thought to have dated back to the 1700s. The new brewery was located beside the Montrose Basin and in its day, was one of the most visible landmarks for miles around with bright creamwashed walls and striking tower. It was the only location outside Newcastle to produce Newcastle Brown Ale. After closing in the 1950s the brewery was bought by Joseph Hobbs, who also ran the Ben Nevis distillery. Joseph Hobbs combined the site with trademarks from the Glenmavis distillery to convert the brewery into Lochside distillery.

The new distillery contained four pot stills and a 21 metre high Coffey still. Lochside distillery was one of a few distilleries which produced both malt and grain whisky. Following the death of Joseph Hobbs, his son, also Joe, ran the distillery until it was acquired by Destilerias y Crianza, of Madrid, in 1973. The main purpose for the distillery was to produce Scotch Malt to blend with their own Spanish spirit. After years of industrious production , Lochside distillery fell victim to drinks industry over-production problems of the early 1990s.

Sadly burnt down in 2005.
