Banff (silent)

(Banff)

The History of this distillery is a tragic one with numerous fires, explosions and even a bombing during WWII where thousands of litres of whisky were destroyed. Like many distilleries in the 1980’s it closed in 1983 and the building was destroyed by fire in 1991. Originally established in 1824 and was situated in between where the distilleries of Macduff and Glenglassaugh are today on the coastal tip of the east Highlands. The only official bottling of this is a Rare Malt release from 2004 otherwise the few bottles to find in circulation are from independent companies.
