Pluscarden Priory, said to have been the first site of the Miltonduff distillery still exists and its ruins have been restored. Although there is no present-day connection with the distillery, the name of the Priory is invoked on the box that houses the Milton Duff bottle. The distillery, established in 1824 was extensively modernised in the 1930s and again in the 1970s.

After a period in which the label on the official bottling spelled the name as two words, they have now been united to match the style used by the distillery itself. For a time the distillery also had a Lomond still producing a heavier malt which was known as Mosstowie. The still has been dismantled but the malt can still be found in independant bottlings.
