The Macduff distillery was founded in the 1960s and is kitted out with five stills, four of which have lyne arms that are rather oddly arranged, with one of the wash stills’ lyne arms being U-shaped too, just so they’ll all fit in the still room! They don’t release whisky themselves under their own name - they release it under the name The Deveron. This is why the name Macduff might be more familiar to you from Shakespeare’s play, ‘Macbeth’. We’ve even put one of the deleted scenes from the play on the label of our Macduff bottling. Press the stopper down to hear the director’s commentary from Shakespeare himself (probably a lie).
Nose: Thyme honey, chewy fruit sweeties (think red and green Wine Gums) and some flaky pastry.
Palate: More pastry notes, though this time filled with apricot jam. Gingerbread and citrus.
Finish: Subtle hints of oily malt and more honey.
