Founded in 1896 by the Dufftown-Glenlivet Distillery Co.
Located on the south side of Dufftown, it draws its waters from Jock’s Well in the Conval Hills.
Being named after the town itself it could be assumed that it was also the first distillery to be set up in Dufftown. However Mortlach (1824), Glenfiddich (1887), Balvenie (1892) Parkmore (1894) and Convalmore (1894) were all established earlier with Glendullan following in 1898.
“Rome was built on seven hills, Dufftown stands on seven stills”. Its famous “seven stills” having risen to nine since the rhyme was composed. With Pittyvaich in 1975 and the last distillery to be built was Kinvinnie in 1990.
It is regarded that Dufftown raises more capital for the Government per head of population than any other place in the UK.
