After being founded by John Duff & Co in 1897, the distillery was mothballed for 65 years with only its floor maltings being used for the Longmorn distillery next door. After experiencing great success under the ownership 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.

The distillery was purchased by Brown-Forman in 2016 - the same year they bought GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh - and in 2017 Rachel Barrie took over as master blender.

The whisky is matured in American oak casks and then finished in dark rum barrels. ‘Dunder’ is the name of the cane-juice residue left in the still after distillation; traditionally used as a yeast source in the fermentation process of Jamaican rum
