In the last century malt whiskey under the brand name "Singleton" is made on Auchroisk Distillery. This distillery, whose name translates from the Gaelic "red ford across the stream," was created in 1974. Distillery was licensed to the company Justerini & Brooks, who also owned distillery Glen Spey, Knockando and Strathmill. Auchroisk Distillery, beverages which have won many awards, is famous for its water source - Dorie's Well (Well Dory), which is called a "gold mine", "undeniably sweet, crystal clear, soft water". In 2001 Auchroisk ceased to produce whiskey "Singleton". Currently, its production is restored to the distillery Dufftown.
Dufftown distillery with a production capacity of more than 4 million liters per year, is the largest distillery, which has no analogues in the world. The factory was founded in 1896 by Peter McKenzie, in collaboration with Richard Stekpoulom and John Simon. Peter McKenzie bought his partners in 1898 and moved to Edinburgh, changing the company name to P Mackenzie Distillers. For some time, the company prospered, but successfully won the US market, has suffered from a crushing blow from Prohibition. Mackenzie son was forced in 1933 to sell Dufftown famous blender Arthur Bell. After a period of 1941-1947 years, when the plant was mothballed, Dufftown resumed production, thriving to this day. Since the early 1970s, the plant was expanded twice, bringing the total number of frames to six.
