There is a local saying in Dufftown: “Rome was built on seven hills and Dufftown stands on seven stills.” Glendullan is the seventh and last distillery built in the town and began production in 1898.The town of Dufftown was founded by the 4th Earl of Fife to provide employment after the Napoleonic Wars. Thanks to its naturally pure water, it soon became the centre of the distilling industry. Today, the town lays claim to the title of malt whisky capital of the world and the Glendullan distillery continues to thrive on the original site where it was built in 1897.Production began in 1898 and in 1902 the Glendullan single malt was supplied by royal request to King Edward VII. In 1972, the distillery was expanded to meet demand, with a further six stills added.Today, Glendullan produces more whisky than most of the distilleries in the Classic Malts selection. Given that The Singleton of Glendullan has been so well received, we can’t imagine there’ll be any let up soon.
