The town of Dufftown has the highest concentration of distilleries in the world, also being home to the Mortlach, Glenfiddich, Balvenie, defunct Convalmore, Glendullan and Kininvie distilleries. Dufftown was founded by the Dufftown-Glenlivet Company in 1895, and was initially creatively named the “Dufftown-Glenlivet Distillery”. In 1897, just one year after production had launched, Mackenzie & Company acquired the distillery and retained responsibility for the site for the next forty years. During the early twentieth century, Arthur Bell and Sons, purchased the distillery, marking the beginning of the use of Dufftown Single Malt in their Blend. Today, Dufftown has three wash stills with a capacity of 13,100 litres, and three spirit stills with a capacity of 15,300 litres. Both the wash and spirit stills have a distinctive “pear” shape, with a wide spherical lid and a gradually narrowing neck. The distillery also has a full lauter mashtun, with a capacity of thirteen tonnes, making it one of the biggest in the entire Scotch Whisky industry.

The distillery sources it’s water and ingredients nearby, but because the town is saturated with distilleries, Dufftown’s water source, Jock’s Well, has been highly disputed over the years, with neighboring distilleries being caught many times trying to divert the course of the spring to their own sites. Dufftown used its own peated malt from the launch of production in 1895 until 1968, when the malting floors were decommissioned. Today the distillery sources its malt from one of the Diageo-owned industrial malting sites. 

Dufftown is recognized for producing a fresh citrus distillate, which you’ll taste in this month’s selection: Lady of the Glen Dufftown 2008 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, distilled March 2008  and matured 13 years in Hogshead with no coloring added. It was bottled in July 2021, and we’re excited to share this new release with you!
