Glen Deveron 1994 Season of Distillation 10 Year Old Pure Single Malt (70cl, 40%)
This 10 year old Glen Deveron was distilled in 1994 at MacDuff distillery. This is a bottling from the later stages of the Glen Deveron lifetime. The whisky is named after the water source, the River Deveron, whereas the distillery is known as 'Macduff'. Independent bottlers often use the name Macduff.
Production began at Macduff distillery in 1963, and it was eventually purchased by William Lawson, the Scotch whisky arm of Italian giants, Martini & Rossi. In addition to provision for the William Lawson blend, the company also set about bottling its single malt, selecting the name "Glen Deveron," and youthful 5 and 8 year old age statements so make it more marketable in Italy, where its Glen Grant equivalents were best-sellers. Glen Deveron disappeared after Bacardi took over the distillery ownership in 1993, but eventually returned as simply The Deveron. Macduff-labelled single malts were widely bottled by independent companies in the meantime, and continue to be today.
