From 1925 to 1937, the distillery was silent until it was reopened by Seagar Evans & Co. Ltd. Since the 1970s, Glenugie's owners were Whitbread & Co. Ltd. Whitbread eventually ceased production due to a major slump in the whisky business and the distillery was permanently shut down and dismantled in 1983. Since the distillery has not produced in so many years and will never produce again, Glenugie Single Malt Scotch Whisky is scarce.

Glenugie Whisky Distillery
Glenugie Distillery

Glenugie Distillery was one of Scotland's most easterly distilleries. It was situated near the port of Peterhead where the river Ugie meets the sea. Its water source was from local springs.

When Scottish Highland Distillers bought Glenugie, they completely renovated the distillery. At this time, the annual output was 90,000 gallons. In 1956, Glenugie once again underwent a major renovation. Included in the renovation was an oil-fired burner which replaced the coal-fired system. As a result, production was significantly increased. The distillery had 2 stills.

The Glenugie Distillery was permanently closed in 1983.
