Ballindalloch Castle has been home to the Macpherson-Grant family since 1546 and sits at the heart of our traditional Scottish Estate. After a number of years of planning, Ballindalloch Distillery began production in September 2014 and represents a return to distilling for the family. Guy Macpherson-Grant is the 23rd generation to live at the Castle and it was his great, great Grandfather, Sir George, who was involved with the building of Cragganmore and Speyside distilleries in the 19th Century. It is his work that we emulate today.
The distillery sits within a renovated farm steading dating from the early 1800's and our attitude to whisky making is one that Sir George would recognise. As Scotland's first Single Estate Distillery, we harvest barley from our own farm, distil and mature our whisky on the Estate together with feeding our Aberdeen Angus cattle with the draff and using our by-products to fertilize our fields. Ours is a whisky crafted by skill and experience, not by computers. Indeed, our commitment to tradition and quality saw us awarded the Icons of Whisky Craft Producer of the Year 2016.
The Distillery is not offering tours at this time.
