Dufftown Distillery, Speyside

Dufftown Distillery, Speyside, Scotland

  This evening, I am focusing on Dufftown Distillery in Speyside. This distillery was founded in1895 and has progressively grown to have eight stills and some 5.8M litres of output per annum thus ranking Dufftown as one of the largest in Scotland. Dufftown is part of the major international drinks group, Diageo which has some 28 distilleries. Another feature of Dufftown is the large mash tun, with a capacity of 13 tonnes, one of the biggest in the industry. About 97pct of Dufftown’s output goes into blends, particularly Bell’s. Historically there was a 15 year old single malt in the Flora and Fauna series. Since 2006 a 15 year old Singleton of Dufftown has been produced with a focus on smoothness.
