The Craigellachie distillery was established in 1888 by Peter J.Mackie. Set in the village of Craigellachie at the meeting point of those two great rivers of whisky lore, the Fiddich and the Spey. The location where the distillery was built was only partially because of the quality of the water there, the main reason was the proximity of the railway. Mackie's company Macky & Co was absorbed by D.C.L (later to become UDV) in 1924. Electricity was installed in the distillery in 1948. The distillery was practically rebuilt in a very modern style in the 1960's. The number of stills was doubled during this rebuilding. The distillery became property of its current owner, together with 4 others. Only 2% of the production is sold as single malt, the remaining malt is used in blends, mainly Dewar's White Label. You will find that it is mainly independent bottlings which are available to buy, but you can find some official bottlings at specialist whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange.
