Lochnagar distillery was built in the years around 1826 by a Mr. James Robertson an infamous local illicit distiller, who placed the distillery on the slopes of the mountain Lochnagar from which it took its name.
Distilling wasn't peaceful work at that time, Lochnagar was destroyed by a fire in 1841 reputed the work of rival illicit distillers.
Four years later in 1845 it was taken over by John Begg who rebuilt the still.
The 'Royal' prefix came after a visit and tasting by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1848, who stayed at nearby Balmoral.
