Pittyvaich Speyside Whisky Distillery
There really isn’t much to tell about Pittyvaich whisky distillery as it had a very short life as a whisky distillery in the capital of whisky production in Speyside, Dufftown. Arthur Bell built Pittyvaich in 1975 in order to provide further supplies for the world famous blended whisky Bells. It was built within very close proximity to Dufftown Distillery in between it and Mortlach church. Arthur Bell even copied the style of stills at Dufftown and installed four of them however this was not enough to make Pittyvaich a success. The distillery was mothballed 18 years after its birth and was completely demolished in 2002.
There was only one official bottling released as part of Diageo’s Flora & Fauna series however some independent bottlings exist.
Taste: Reported as a mostly sherried expressions with fruit on the nose and strong spice on the palate.
