MM Distillery profile:
Caperdonich distillery started its life as 'Glen Grant #2'. This Speyside distillery was built in 1898 by J. & J. Grant, the people that also built the 'original' Glen Grant distillery in 1840; conveniently located just accross the street in Rothes. Other neigbours include Glenrothes and Glen Spey. Both 'sister' distilleries are located at the northern end of Moraytown Village in Rothes, but only one of them operated continuously until the present day. Glen Grant #2 closed its doors again after just four years in 1902 due to the after effects of the Pattison Crisis that shook up the whisky world .... More on Malt Madness.
