Found in the Southern part of Scotland’s Speyside region in 1975, Allt-A-Bhainne supplies malt whiskey for Chivas blends. Created as a subsidiary of Seagram’s, the small distillery creates malts through a simplified distilling process that features barrels manned by a single staff member. After a brief hiatus, the distillery was re- opened in 2005 due to high demand for the nuanced, high-quality spirits.
