Carse is from Scots "kerse" - "low-lying or fertile land"
The distillery dates from 1799, so would originally have had pot stills, continuous stills were installed in 1851. It became the largest distillery in Europe, but fell victim to the Whisky glut of the early 1980s. Following closure in 1983, the distillery buildings were demolished in 1992, but Diageo retained ownership with a cooperage and warehouse complex on site until 2011.
