This distillery, not far from Dufftown was built in 1973 during Seagram's expansion in Scotland. There are three stills, each with the distinctive bulge in the neck known as a "Milton Ball". The entire output is used for blending. The architecture of the complex was kept close to traditional distillery design whilst employing the most advanced modern production technology - the entire plant can be operated by one man. Water comes from the Preenie and Kate's Well.

It has changed its name to the Braeval Distillery, this apparently to stop any confusion with other distilleries with similar names in the area. [as]
