"A small village in Clackmannan parish, was formerly noted for its distillery; but at the present time its only industry is paper making."

[Clackmannan and Kinross by J.P.Day B.A. B Sc., 1915 ]

In the latter part of the eighteenth century, Kilbagie was the largest distillery in Scotland, with an annual output of '3000 tuns of whisky'. It was connected by canal and tramway with Kennetpans. Changes in the law brought about the abandonment of older distilleries such as Kilbagie and Kilbagie.

The first effective threshing machine in Scotland was erected at Kilbagie by George Meikle, the son of the celebrated inventor, both of whom resided in Alloa.

Kilbagie is in Clackmannan parish.
