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.
