There appears to be eveidence that the distillery may well have been operating since 1785, it is officially recorded that it was founded in 1797 making it one of the oldest ditileries in Scotland.

The area is known for its abundance of some of the finest gold fields of Barley and whilst the distillery has suffered many a closure over the years for various reasons its current owners have restored it beautifully in the late 1990's.

A fine example of Victorian granite buildings in the Old Meldrum Village but 20 miles from Aberdeen. It is the most easterly working distillery in Scotland.

The spirit is one of the most floral whiskies that integrates fine oak and sherry to form a warming honey sweet syrupy delight. With hints of nuts and flashes of  burnt heather smokiness.A fine dram indeed especially the older versions.
