Ballindalloch Distillery began production in 2014. There’s a clear commitment to tradition using barley from the estate and the draff from production feeds the cows. Most other distilleries would have released whisky by now but they are waiting!
To the back of the distillery lies Ballindalloch Golf Course. Nearby is Ballindalloch Castle which is open to visitors. The castle was built in 1546 and is the Macpherson-Grant family home, owners of Ballindalloch Distillery.
Ballindalloch Distillery is closed due to the Covid-19 Crisis. The tours are designed to be in depth experiences. The Ballindalloch Spirit Tour (£75) is a technical look at the Distillery and aimed at those who want to understand how a Distillery really operates and includes time spent with the distillation team. Duration 3.5 to 4 hours. There is even a whisky expereince which meand you can work with the team for a day. Any tasting is likely to be from Macpherson-Grant family’s private casks not Ballindalloch.
Ballindalloch Distillery is situated to the south of Aberlour. There are many distilleries close by including Glenlivet and Cragganmore.
