Cragganmore distillery has several distinctive features which mark it out against many other Speyside facilities – worm tubs, the use of lightly peated barley and spirit still which are both small and particularly flat (and also end up in worms). Cragganmore’s spirit stills are the only pair of its type in Scotland and are often singled out as responsible for the distinctive style of the whisky the distillery produces.

Cragganmore distillery was founded in 1869 by John Smith in the village of Ballindalloch in Banffshire. The whisky is lightly peated and is produced from a unique array of four stills. The two wash stills are particularly large and possess very steeply angled lyne arms – the two spirit stills are rather small with long, gently angled lyne arms – all four arms descend into wormtubs. It is the configuration of the spirit stills and their arms, which greatly contribute to the overall complexity of the Cragganmore spirit.
