More from Banff

The Banff distillery was built by James McKilligan & Co. at the Banff Bay in Inverboyndie, Scotland in 1824. In succeeding years, the ownership of the distillery was transferred to Alex Mackay and to James Simpson Sr. and James Simpson Jr.

Banff suffered from several fires that have greatly affected the distillery’s operations. Most of the spirits that were stored in the distillery have been lost due to these incidents. Banff was closed by its last owner in 1983 due to the problems with the area’s water supply. The distillery was completely closed in 1991 when it suffered another fire.

Despite all of these events, quite a bit of the Banff single malt remains. There are even several independent bottling. Since 1991, the distillery has bottled several expressions of its single malt bottles of whisky. Banff has also released a bottling of its 21-year-old Banff single malt in its Rare Malts range. Other expressions include a Banff 1976 single malt from the Connoisseur’s Choice range, a Banff 37-Year-old 1975, a Banff 1974 Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, and a Banff 1966 Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
