Thomsons and Co

P. Thomson, a farmer at North Mains of Strathallan, was one of the partners in Thomsons & Co, which had taken on the lease of the Auchterarder Brewery by 1841. The partnership was most probably the successor to Thomson & Garbois, but little is known about it other than that its brewery utensils were offered for sale in 1841, at the same time as offers were invited for the lease of the brewery.

Breweries and other buildings

The Auchterarder Brewery was most probably what was previously known as the Ruthvenbank Brewery. Nothing remains of the brewery buildings, and the site is now part of a field.


We do not currently hold any images of items related to Thomsons & Co, and would welcome any information or images related to the company.
