Speckled Mountain / Trister Berg
1897 by John Duff & Co.
Ran for only two years after opening before closing for 65, except for producing malt for Longmorn.
Restarted production in 1965 under Glenlivet Distillers.
Owned by Seagrams until 2001, then by Pernod Ricard.
The reputation of the whisky was not great.
Taken over in 2004 by Billy Walker and two South African entrepreneurs.
Purchased in 2016 by Brown-Forman (Jack Daniels, Woodford Reserve).
Production of both peated and non-peated whisky.
Whisky is often heavy on exotic fruits with some subtle spiciness.
