Glendullan distillery
La distillerie Glendullan est située près de la rivière Fiddich, à la périphérie Dufftown et juste au nord où l’eau de la rivière Dullan s’écoule dans la rivière Fiddich. Le nom de la distillerie vient de cette rivière et signifie «vallée de la Dullan”.
En 1962, des travaux majeurs sont entrepris dans la distillerie, y compris une nouvelle « Still house » et un nouveau système de chauffage des alambiques. En 1972, une nouvelle distillerie (« Glendullan 2 »), avec 6 alambiques, est rajoutée à côté de la vieille distillerie (« Glendullan 1 »). Entre 1972 et 1985, les deux distilleries travaillent en parallèle, jusqu’à la fermeture de la première. Pendant ces 13 années, les distillats des deux distilleries sont mélangés dans les fûts et utilisés pour le blending. Glendullan 1 est désormais l’atelier principal pour Diageo. Depuis 2007, la distillerie Glendullan 2 tourne à plein régime.
Glendullan devint la propriété de Guinness en 1986, à la suite du rachat de Distillers Company Limited. Elle appartient désormais à Diageo.

The bottler : James MacArthur
James MacArthur was established in 1982 with the aim of selecting whiskies from Scottish Distilleries which were either not very well known or had ceased to operate and bottling them at cask strength, thus introducing whisky drinkers to distilleries they had never heard of.
This policy has been continued, with top quality single barrel bottlings from a wide selection of distilleries. Whiskies are currently bottled at ages ranging from 10 years to 30 years and at both cask strength and 45%vol. These are fine examples of the quality and variety available from each whisky producing region and the Company has won several awards over the years for its bottlings, both internationally and in the UK. Our bottlings are also well received by Jim Murray in the Whisky Bible, the Spirit Journal in the U.S.A. and by Malt Maniacs in Europe.
James MacArthur’s Old Masters, Cask strength whiskies are bottled at natural strength and without the whisky having been chill-filtered or having colour added. The 45% bottlings, although reduced in strength, are similarly non chill-filtered and have no added colour. The aim is to offer a product which is as natural as possible and which retains its original characteristics and flavours.

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
