Nevis distillery stood on the north side of the town of Fort William. Donald P. McDonald established it in 1878 as a part of a project of expanding Ben Nevis distillery. It ran till 1908. It was torn down after that. Now there stands a hotel and residential houses. By the way, Ben Nevis distillery was owned by Joseph Hobbs but closed in 1987. After that, Nikka whisky of Japan bought it and ran the place from 1990. Now, Inverlochy Castle in Fort William where Joseph Hobb used to live is one of the classic hotels in England.
