Set in Glen Fiddich – the valley of the deer –
Dufftown was founded by the 4th Earl of Fife to provide employment
after the Napoleonic Wars. Thanks to its naturally pure water,

the high, wooded hills above the distillery glen. We bring
them together slowly, to ensure the spirit’s round,
elegant and beautifully balanced nature. We take longer

most fragrant, rich fruit flavors.

and with air-cured hams.
Taste style: Smooth, spicy then soft and pleasantly sweet.
