The site of Pittyvaich Distillery is in the middle of a square of warehouses now used by Dufftown Distillery
Pittyvaich was built opposite the Dufftown Distillery in an effort to reproduce the whisky of Dufftown Distillery - the stills were exact replicas.
Despite this there were reputedly differences, and come the whisky market downturn of the early 90s, Pittyvaich was mothballed in 1993. It was demolished in 2002, giving it a very short overall life.
