Caperdonich, originally known as "Glen Grant #2", was built in 1898 by the founders of the Glen Grant distillery, J. & J. Grant.

It closed after four years and was dormant until 1965 when it was rebuilt by Glenlivet Distilleries Ltd. By that time, British law prohibited simultaneously operating distilleries from using the same name, and Glen Grant #2 was reopened as "Caperdonich".

In 1967, two steam-heated pot stills were added. Technological advances allowed the distillery to be run by only two people.

The distillery was sold to Seagram in 1977 and sold again to Pernod Ricard in 2001. One year after purchasing it, Pernod Ricard closed the distillery. In autumn 2010 the distillery was demolished.

Director's Cut is Douglas Laing's deluxe single malt series featuring amazing and old drams.
