Description

Built in 1975 by Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd, situated next door to her sister distillery Dufftown. Pittyvaich had two wash stills and two spirit stills and was primarily used in Bells Blends. In 1991 Diageo released the first official bottling

under the Flora and Fauna range. Pittyvaich Distillery was used briefly for the production of Gin in November 1994, as an experiment. This was to establish the feasibility of having a shadow production facility at Pittyvaich in the event of

a disaster at the main company Gin distillery in London. The results were never bottled and there are no plans to do this again.
