Right on the little river Livet, on the steep side of the glen. The exact location of the distillery, the hamlet of Tomnavoulin, favours a different spelling from the distillery but such discrepancies are hardly unusual in Scotland. The name means "mill on the hill" and part of the premises was formerly used for the carding of wool. The distillery, built in the 1960s has a somewhat utilitarian look. Look out for occasional bottlings under the rubric "Stillman's Dram".

10 yr old, 80 proof
Another Glenlivet owned distillery, opened in 1966. Quite good, although not exceptional, and generally very low priced. A bargain if you find it. [lh]
