After being founded by the Grant family in 1898, the distillery was mothballed for 65 years with only its floor maltings being used for the Longmorn distillery next door. Now in the hands of Billy Walker and his partners, it won Distillery of the Year from Malt Advocate magazine in 2007 and has received rave reviews for its peated and un-peated expressions alike.
This heavily peated whisky was shipped in cask to Japan, where it was hand bottled as part of an event in a Japanese department store. Obviously this happened prior to 2009 when the Scotch Whisky Association deemed this practice to be illegal.
