 Founded in 1832 it is the world's oldest and one of the largest distillery centre... If you are thinking what is a distillery ... hehehe .. i know u know it... the downtown alcohol plant :D

Though it saw a phase of deindustrialisation and demolitions ..it nonetheless survived to be one of the oldest area where all the english architecture of gargoyles and minarets clearly preserved with the chimneys, boiler houses , rack houses, canary, tankhouses and others...

In the year 2001 ..it was transformed to a cultural heritage centre so that world can see and feel what the 18th century was like...
