INTRODUCTION
The land at Distillery Farm is situated about one miles north of Annan in Southwest Scotland. This area of South West Scotland is a distinctly rural area, which has been unspoilt by modern industry and where agriculture and tourism form the backbone of the local economy.

The area is noted for its fertile and productive grassland. The land lies in the climatically favoured southwest corner of Scotland which is known for its mild climate and long growing season. This has contributed to the area being one of the most productive livestock and dairying areas in the United Kingdom.
