The Distillery

The history of the Banff distillery is just a succession of destructions and reconstructions.
The distillery was settled just a mile outside the town Banff, on the seaside North of Speyside. It has been founded in 1824 by James Mc Killigan. Its first name was Mill of Banff then Inverboyndie Distillery.
Closed in 1863, it has been rebuild on another site in Inverboyndie.
Destroyed by fire in 1877, it has been the target of a bombing in august 1941. In 1953, an explosion in the still room damaged the distillery once again.
The last building of the distillery has been destroyed by a fire in 1991.
However, its malt can still be found at some independent distillers.
The malt of the Banff distillery was used in the "Slater Rodger" blend.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
