It comes from the first distillery to receive a license to produce spirits legally in the parish of Glenlivet, and is now one of the biggest selling single malt brands in the world.
The family home of the Macpherson-Grants since 1546, Ballindalloch Castle is known today as ‘The Pearl of the North’. Explore and enjoy five hundred years of Highland history, acres of formal gardens, woodlands and riverside walks, the children’s playground, picnic area, tearoom and gift shop.
