HISTORY & HERITAGE

There’s a local saying in Dufftown: “Rome was built on seven hills and Dufftown stands on seven stills”. In 1897, Glendullan was the seventh distillery built in the famous Scottish town of Dufftown in Speyside, and is named after the Dullan Water, which runs through the Dufftown township.

Situated in the rolling Conval Hills on the edge of a river where salmon spawn in winter, Glendullan is a picture-perfect image of the majestic Scottish countryside and the producer of an award-winning Single Malt.

With access to crystal clear fresh water, barley grown on rich local soil and even a private railway that once transported the casks south, the distillery prospered and by 1902, its whisky had found favour at the court of King Edward VII.

THE LIGHT ONE

Using large onion-shaped stills in the distillation process, Glendullan crafts a light, delicate, green apple spirit profile. The spirit is predominantly matured in American oak ex Bourbon casks, which naturally impart layers of sweet, nutty flavours, and blended with a small portion of liquid rested in European oak ex Sherry casks to lend a rich fruity dimension for a perfectly balanced Single Malt. Master Blender Keith Law oversees the blending of the casks, tapping on 36 years of experience to bring to the life the delicate and distinct expressions of the portfolio.
