The Cragganmore distillery was founded in 1869, by John Smith who was said to have been the most experienced distiller of his day.
John Smith chose the distillery’s location on the north east of Scotland due to the abundance of barley as well as its proximity to Scotland’s fastest flowing river, the River Spey, and the connection to the Great Highway Railway line.
Today the distillery is home to one of the most complex and characterful malt whiskies of the Speyside region
