At the watershed of the Findhorn between Forres and 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.
