Craigellachie means rocky hill in Gaelic.
Craigellachie is not open to the public.
One of a number of distilleries (Glendullan, Caol Ila, Clynelish, Glen Ord, Aberfeldy) rebuilt in similar fashion by then owners Scottish Malt Distillers (a predecessor of Diageo) in the 60's/70's with glass fronted still rooms.

Craigellachie distillery is on Hill Street - the A941 to Dufftown.
Until October 2014, the only recent official bottling of Craigellachie was a 14yo released in 2004, which is not readily available any more. A range of three official bottlings has now been released - 13yo, 17yo, 23yo all at 46%, which are a bit pricey. The 14yo Flora and Fauna from the days of Diageo's ownership is extremely rare.
You are more likely to find better value Craigellachie as an independent bottling.
