* The GlenDronach Distillery was founded in 1825. The present buildings date from 1850 and, although rebuilt after an unfortunate fire, it is one of the most traditional and beautiful distilleries in Scotland.
It was the last to use coal for the heating of stills, until 2005, a rarity these days; only Glann Ar Mor in France and Yoichi in Japan currently use charcoal for stills.
The distillery is owned by the company BenRiach / GlenDronach, who bought it from Pernod Ricard in 2008, and offers a range of excellent malt aged in sherry barrels.
