MM Distillery profile:
Pittyvaich is one of the youngest distilleries in the Speyside area - or in the whole of Scotland for that matter. It was built in 1974 by Arthur Bell & Sons next to the Dufftown distillery and production did start in 1975. When Pittyvaich was built in 1974 it was intended as a 'sister distillery' for Dufftown. Shortly after United Distillers released the first semi-official bottling (as Flora & Fauna) in 1991, the Pittyvaich distillery was closed in 1993. That means that the distillery operated for less than two decades .
