At the watershed of the Findhorn between
Elgin, this distillery
produces malts that contribute to the Ballantine
blends. Despite its somewhat distant location the distillery uses the
appellation Glenburgie-Glenlivet. A distillery was founded on the site at
Alves in 1829, subsequently fell into disuse, was revived in 1878 and extended
in 1958. At this time the two original stills were augmented by a pair of
shorter, cylindrical-necked Lomond stills but
these were removed in 1981.
