Caperdonich Distillery is in the Morayshire town of Rothes and when built in 1897 it was known as Glen Grant Number 2, Glen Grant being immediately across the road. Because of troubles which overcame the whisky industry, it was
closed in 1901.
It was rebuilt as a modern distillery in 1965 and renamed Caperdonich (Gaelic for The Secret Well and also the name of the well from which the distillery draws its water). Two of the original stills were brought back into production
after being unused for about 65 years.
