Closer to the Spey than to the river Isla, somewhere between the two, this distillery was founded in 1898, extensively remodelled in the 1920s and rebuilt in 1965. It temporarily closed in the mid 1980s but was then acquired and reopened by Allied Distillers at the end of the decade. In the past it was one of the distilleries linked with the Buchanan blends. Its malt has been bottled as a single by various independants, most recently Gordon & MacPhail.
