This is a seaside malt, produced near Portsoy, on the coast of Speyside.
The distillery is between the Spey and the river Deveron, just a little closer
to the latter. It was founded in 1875, bought by Highland Distilleries in the
1890s and completely rebuilt in 1960. It has been temporarily closed since the
mid 1980s. The single malt is not widely available . The whisky has also
contributed to blends like the Famous Grouse, Cutty Sark and Lang's.
