Description  :Standing in a pleasant location not far from the historic town of Elgin, the distillery was founded in 1824 and is quite near the restored Abbey of Pluscarden. It was owned by Hiram Walker from 1936, but is now operated by Allied Distillers Ltd. There are six Opot' stills, and water comes from a spring and borehole, while cooling water comes from the Black Burn. This burn is said to have been blessed by one of the abbots of Pluscarden, and thereafter the drink distilled from the burn was called Oaqua vitae' or the water of life (Ouisge beatha' in Gaelic). The 12-Year-Old Miltonduff Glenlivet Pure Single Malt is produced here, and is a fragrant, medium-bodied and lightly-peated malt. The distillery offers tours by appointment and there is a reception centre.
