MM Distillery profile:
The Glen Moray distillery started out as the West Brewery (founded in 1828), but in 1897 it was converted into a whisky distillery with two stills. Glen Moray was operational until 1910 when it was closed. It was briefly reopened in 1912 but closed again the same year, after which the distillery remained silent for almost a decade.
In 1920 Macdonald & Muir (who already owned a share in Glenmorangie) bought Glen Moray after the distillery found itself confronted .... More on Malt Madness.
