All about making whisky
- The brand
Built in 1962 by William Lawson Distillers Ltd (John Dewars & Sons), Macduff was one of only a small number of Scottish distilleries to be founded in the 1920’s. When it first began, all of its malt was used for William Lawson, a blend well-known to France in the 1980s. Later, a ten year old version of its single malt was released under the name Glen Deveron. Only a handful of independent bottlers, including Signatory Vintage and Gordon & MacPhail, offer vintage bottlings of this highly exclusive single malt.
The Nectar of the Daily Drams range was born from a passion for Scottish single malts shared by two great whisky connoisseurs, Mario Groteklaes and Jan Broekmans (who founded the Belgium company, The Nectar, in 2006). Young and old single malts stand side by side in this range, whether from well-known distilleries or not. Their research and selection work often draws rave reviews on amateur whisky blogs. One to watch out for!
