The collection was previously stored with the rest of the Scottish Brewing Archive at Heriot-Watt University. The records noted in Richmond & Turton's book (the well bore and water analysis records 1886-1891) do not appear to have been moved with the rest of the Scottish Brewing Archive to the University of Glasgow in 1991. Custody of the Scottish Brewing Archive was transferred to Glasgow University Archive Services in 2008.
