About the distillery

The Glenugie Distillery was established in 1831 by Donald McLeod & Co Ltd and was originally called Invernettie. It was situated in the town of Peterhead. In 1884, Simon Forbes purchased the distillery and enjoyed some success with it. He operated it until 1915.

The distillery was silent for most of World War I, but opened for a short time in 1923-1924 as the Glenugie Distillery Ltd, but again remained silent from 1925 to 1937. Seager Evans & Co Ltd then re-opened it in 1937.

Glenugie was one of a number of distilleries that failed to continue past the 1983 market. This was because there was too much competition at the time, leading to about a dozen single malt distilleries closing in this year.

The distillery was dismantled and the premises were taken over by Score Group plc, who have built their workshops on this site.

Pronunciation : "glen-oojee"

Other Information

"Deoch an Doras" is loosely translated as 'drink at the door', a range of bottles released by Chivas Brothers.

From the sorely missed Glenugie distillery (silent in 1983 and now demolished), this whisky was distilled in 1980 before being bottled at 30 year old in 2011.
