The Glendullan distillery was founded in 1897 by Williams & sons and is the last of seven distillery built in Dufftown.

TheGlendullan distillery is located in Dufftown and for the production of his whisky the Glendullan distillery uses the water which comes from Fiddich river.

In 1902 the Glendullan distillery was delivered to the Royal Court of Edward VII and the whisky of Glendullan distillery became his favorite whisky.

In 1972 there was more demand for production both from abroad and from the motherland. So another distillery was built between the Glendullan distillery and the worker’s houses.
The two distilleries had worked together for few year and in 1985 the oldest of two was closed.

The distance between the two distilleries was described as

“A short one when the weather’s good, and a long one when it isn’t.”
The Glendullan distillery buys the malt from Diego and for the whisky uses American and European Oak, which both give to the Glendullan distillery's whisky honeyed hints and a balancing dryness.
