Caperdonich was originally built as, and known
by, the Glen Grant Number 2. It was founded in 1898, but was
closed in 1902 due to the liquor industry recession. It remained
closed until 1965 when it was rebuilt and named Caperdonich.
It was expanded from two to four stills in 1967. The purpose
of Caperdonich was to supplement Glen Grant located directly
across the narrow Rothes Main Street. In fact, the distilleries
were joined by a pipe for the purpose of mixing their malts.
Their production processes are nearly identical and they share
the same water source, the Caperdonich Well. Some connoisseurs,
who have compared the two single malts, believe the Caperdonich
to be a bit more fruity and smoky than the Glen Grant. You
be your own judge.
