Distillery is closed, the premises are used by William Grants for warehousing..
Convalmore was the fourth distillery to open in Dufftown and is sited adjacent to Balvenie. They experimented briefly in the early years of the 20th century using a column still to make spirit from malted barley, this continuous distillation method was discontinued in 1916 - what would the modern SWA have to say about such distillation?
Given the proximity of their own distilleries, William Grant & Sons bought the premises in 1990, but stripped out the distillation equipment and have used it for warehousing their own products.
