For the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival we are opening the doors to Dufftown Distillery which is usually closed to visitors. 

The 1890s saw a boom in the Scotch Whisky trade, and the establishment of - Dufftown's sixth at the time - by Peter MacKenzie and Richard Stackpole. 

The two converted an old saw mill and, despite a few wranglings over the distillery's water supply, set about producing a whisky so popular that it survived the whisky crash of 1898, the US Prohibition Act of 1920, and thanks to Arthur Bell and Sons, the great depression of the 1930s to become a global brand known for its accessible, balanced taste. 

Over half of Scotland's malt whisky distilleries are found on Speyside, and Dufftown distillery is at the centre of this fertile region, caught between mountains, river and sea.  With water so pure, rival distillers of old tried to divert its course. 

We invite you to join the Distillery Manager for an in-depth tour of the production process followed by a nosing and tasting of specially selected whiskies from the Diageo portfolio.
