MM Distillery profile:
One of the colourful people in the whisky world of the second half of the 19th century was John Duff, former manager at Glendronach and founder of the Longmorn distillery. After running a hotel for a few years he started John Duff & Co. with a few business partners in 1876. In the very same year they launched Glenlossie distillery.
Glenlossie is a remarkable distillery for many reasons, but the malt whisky it produces is fairly obscure. One thing that .... More on Malt Madness.
