Located on the outskirts of Keith, Glentauchers was one of the many distilleries which fell foul of the slump in demand in the early 1980s and was mothballed in 1895.
 
It was, somewhat surprisingly at the time, snapped up by one of Diageo’s rivals, Allied Distillers.
 
In 1989, the Allied estate became part of Chivas Brothers in 2005 when it became a named component of Ballantine’s, although the firm didn’t restart production until 1992.
 

Independent bottlings from this distillery are few and far between.
