The Deveron comes from the Macduff distillery and is a part of “The Last Great Malts” range by John Dewar & Sons. The other malts in the range include: Aberfeldy, Aultmore, Craigellachie, and Royal Brackla.
The Macduff distillery is located close to the town of the same name on the north Aberdeenshire coast. It was founded in 1962 by a trio of local businessmen – George Crawford, Marty Dyke and Brodie Hepburn – who set up Macduff Distillers Ltd. Production began in 1963 and the reputation of the distillery grew. In the early 1970s Macduff malt was first used in popular William Lawson’s blend and it has remained one of the most important ingredients used by the brand to this day. Macduff is currently owned by John Dewar & Sons, which are part of the larger Bacardi group.
