Allt-a Bhainne (pronounced Alt-a-Bane) in Gaelic means "Burn of milk." The distillery is a newcomer to the industry having been constructed in 1975. It stands on the northern slopes of Benrinnes about 8 miles south-west of historic Dufftown. It was built by Chivas Brothers, a subsidiary of the Seagram Company of Canada. Although built with a modern design, four small pagoda roofs crown the main roof as a reminder of distillery architecture tradition. Very little production has been issued, so tasting samples have been scarce.
