Delnabo distillery

Not much is known of the Delnabo distillery, and details are often confused. As far as it’s possible to corroborate Delnabo distillery was either an existing distillery leased by George Smith and managed by his son John Gordon or established by the same on the site. The distillery was used during the ascendancy of the Glenlivet but consolidated into the Minmore farm distillery which later became Glenlivet.
