First, in Glen Feardan, three years earlier burned competitors. Unfortunately, the plant "Lochnagar" fifteen years later suffered the same fate. Then there is the next owner - John Begg - building in 1845 a new building on the south bank of the river. In this type of plant has survived to the present day. John Begg was a successful businessman. He sent to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert invited to visit the factory. Royal personages were not only an ardent admirer of the national drink, but also keenly interested in technology and industry - Victorian era coincided with the Industrial Revolution. After the visit, "Lochnagar" becomes the supplier of the royal court, gets a "Royal Warrant" and a new name - "Royal Lochnagar".
