Upper Drummin

Around 1774 Andrew Smith begins distillation on his farm, he dies leaving this to his Son George who following the Excise Act of 1823, and much to the displeasure of his neighbours, themselves operating illicit stills takes out a license and establishes Glenlivet distillery at Upper Drummin farm. The first distiller in the Highlands to do so. The distillery was closed during 1858 after some fire damage though the bulk of the equipment was saved and consolidated into the Minmore site
