MM Distillery profile:
The Glen Keith distillery was built in 1957-1960 on the site of a corn mill by Chivas Brothers, who also owned the existing Strathisla distillery nearby. It was one of the first new malt distilleries in Scotland since the late-Victorian whisky boom. Glen Keith (a.k.a. Glenkeith) originally had three stills because the distillery was designed for triple distillation. This 'Lowland' set-up was very unusual for a Speyside distillery.... More on Malt Madness.
