The Dufftown distillery first drew water from Highlandman John’s Well in 1896 and continues to do so to this day.
Curiously, the new-make spirit that runs from the three pairs of stills is best described as spicy in character. However, 12 years in a combination of American and European Oak mellow this down to wonderfully tasting whisky with a nice bite. The unique bottle shape of The Singleton of Dufftown is inspired by a traditional hipflask while the colour of the glass reflects the blue flint glass used at the turn of the previous century.
It won the World Whiskies Award 2012 - Best Speyside 12 years and under.
