The History of Dufftown Distillery

The Dufftown distillery distils Scotch whisky and is located in Dufftown in Baffshire. Although not one of the best-known distilleries in Scotland it has a long history (although certainly not the longest of all Scottish distilleries) and is only one of many distilleries to be concentrated in this area of the country.

Originally founded in 1895 the Dufftown distillery was originally called the Dufftown-Glenlivet distillery, and today it is owned by Diageo. There are six stills in operation at the distillery and today it is capable of producing 4 million litres per year. Its three wash stills have a 13,100 litre capacity and it also has 3 spirit stills that have a 15,300 litre capacity. Arthur Bell and Sons Ltd use Duff Town’s Speyside whisky as a key component within its blended bottlings. Duff Town also markets single malt whisky under two names – Dufftown Aged 15 years and Singleton of Dufftown. It is one of 6 active distilleries in the town, the others include Mortlach, Kininvie, Glenfiddich, Glendullan and Balvenie.

Originally beginning its life as a mill, Dufftown only began producing whisky in 1896. Originally owned by Mackenzie & Co, a blending company which already owned Blair Athol, the Dufftown distillery was taken over in 1933 by Arthur Bell and Sons. It became on the that blender’s estate’s key players, and its number of stills were increased to 8 by 1979. At present there are 6.

The Pittyvaich Distillery nearby was also constructed by Bells in 1975 and it was operated as a virtual subsidiary of the original Dufftown operation in order to cater for the increase in demand for its blend at that time. In 1993, Pittyvaich was closed down and in 2002 it was demolished. In 1985, Guinness purchased Bells and after two years, in 1987, Diageo was created.

Until Roseisle was opened, Dufftown held the honour of being the biggest distillery under the Diageo umbrella. It joined Glen Ord and Glendullan in 2006 as part of the Singleton family and its market became predominantly Europe and the UK.  Under the Diageo brand, its fermentation stage as been lengthened so the wort runs clear to create a grassy new make as this is what is required by Diageo’s blenders.

The Dufftown distillery is not open to the public and cannot be visited today for tastings or for tours.
