A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY: THE NEXT BALLANTRAE FESTIVAL OF FOOD & DRINK WILL TAKE PLACE ON 12 & 13 JUNE 2021

1750’s

Now that his customers stretched from Ardnamurchan to Stranraer, George Moore used agents on the Scottish coast to help him collect his debts for smuggled goods. The Ballantrae merchant, John Allan, acted as one of these agents. He was also one of Moore’s customers: in November 1757, the boatmaster William Cumming delivered an order of brandy, rum, white wine and claret to him.
