Cragganmore distillery

Cragganmore is a Scotch whisky distillery situated in the village of Ballindalloch in Banffshire, Scotland.

The distillery was founded in 1869 by John Smith on land leased from Strathspey Railway. Smith was an experienced distiller, having already been manager of the Macallan, Glenlivet, Glenfarclas and Wishaw distilleries.[1]

The Strathspey Railway is now disused and forms the Speyside Way long-distance walking route.

Cragganmore is marketed by United Distillers under their Classic Malts brand.

The Whisky

The stills used in the second distillation (the spirit still) of Cragganmore whisky are unique in having a flat top and being relatively short. The stills' shape has a definite effect on the taste and aroma (nose) of the whisky.

Laura Vernon is the current master distiller.
