In 1965 the distillery relocated to its current premises on the site of a disused dyeing plant. It changed hands in 1987 and underwent a renovation by its new owners, acquiring a Coffey still in 1993 in order to produce grain whisky.

In recent times the distillery has become a tourist attraction due to its association with the Tintin comics and features an original whisky tank wagon from the steam age painted in an authentic black and yellow livery derived from the freight train in Hergé’s book. The distillery does not accept visitors or tours and is run by a private equity company who have paid a considerable sum for the company.
