The distillery was fully modernised in the 1980’s and can now produce over 5 million litres per annum. The finest malt has been distilled on the same site since 1879. For production, the site uses a stainless-steel, semi-Lauter mash tun, half a dozen pine washbacks and mixed variety of stills. The bulk of production goes towards blending, however the single malt vintage expressions are never around for too long! A very popular malt. 1972, 1975 and 1978 vintages are ones to watch out for, and are enjoyed by connoisseurs in the UK, America and the Far East.
