Tekst

Settled near the river Deveron, on the border of the Speyside area, the Macduff distillery has been created by the Glen Deveron Distillers Ltd in 1962. It has been sold 12 years later to the Bacardi group.

During its short history, the Macduff distillery has had several alterations, in order to test different distillation techniques.

Macduff was the first of all distilleries in Scotland to experiment metal mashtuns, and it was also the first one to use steam to heat the stills.

Further, Macduff is one of the only distilleries who isolate the lyne arm in order to save on energy before placing the condensers horizontally in order to optimise the cooling process.

Macduff doubled its production between 1966 and 1968. It installed a 5th still in 1990.

The single malt from the distillery is officially called "Glen Deveron", and some independent bottlers market whisky from the distillery under the name "Macduff". The malt is part of the composition of William Lawson blend.
