Description

The Pittyvaich distillery, built in 1974 by Arthur Bell & Sons, was among the youngest Scottish distilleries while it was operating. It stood near the Dufftown Distillery in Dufftown. Pittyvaich was originally intended as a ‘sister distillery’ for Dufftown.

Originally built to provide malt whisky for blends, Pittyvaich eventually did release an official bottling in 1991. Prior to the official bottling, a number of independent bottlers (including Signatory Vintage and Cadenhead’s) released Pittyvaich as a single malt. Shortly after United Distillers released the first semi-official bottling (as Flora & Fauna) in 1991, the Pittyvaich distillery was closed in 1993. That means that the distillery operated for less than two decades – making it a short-lived adventure. The distillery was demolished in 2002.
