Sitting on a rocky headland across the River Deveron from Banff is the fishing port of Macduff. Like Banff it also gives its name to a distillery. Established in the early 1960s by a consortium of Glasgow-based whiskybrokers and
businessmen, the distillery was designed by renowned engineer William Delme- Evans. The original consortium sold out in 1964 to a London firm of wine merchants. The distillery was then taken over by drinks company Martini in
1972 before being acquired by present owners, Bacardi. The official bottling is branded as Glen Deveron and the malt is a key component of William Lawsons Blend.
