MM Distillery profile:
The Glen Deveron / MacDuff distillery was founded in 1962, which makes it one of the youngest in Scotland. Even so, it seems to have changed its name more often than most other, much older distilleries. The official name kept changing from Glen Deveron to MacDuff & back. The name of the original founding company was Glen Deveron Distillers Limited, which was a joint corporation of Brodie Hepburn (also involved in the Deanston and Tullibardine distilleries) .
