Located in the heart of Sandend Bay, the Glenglassaugh distillery was founded by James Moir in 1875 and led Whisky production until 1892, when the distillery was bought by Highland Distillers. Production continued until 1986 and, after a break of twenty years, was resumed in 2008 by a group of investors. The BenRiach Distillery Company took the reins in 2013: the intent was to revive the iconic Glenglassaugh distillery.
For its whisky production, the best quality malt and traditional distillation methods are used. The spirit is that of producing whisky of the highest quality, thanks to the skills that artisan production can achieve; for the maturation oak barrels are carefully selected to allow a slow maturation of the whisky.
