"Rome was build on seven hills, Dufftown stands on seven stills".
In Dufftown there are nine distilleries actually but they are not all working now. If I did not lose count there are 6 distilleries working in Dufftown at the moment.
Historically in alphabetical order Balvenie, Convalmore (c) Dufftown, Glendullan, Glenfiddich, Mortlach and Parkmore (c). 1974 Arthur Bell&Sons added Pittyvaich (c), demolished in 2002 and William Grant&Sons added Kininvie in the late 1980s. Together with Allt à Bhainne only a few miles out of town that would make nine. Of Pittyvaich, the tenth there is only a plain barren clearing in a little valley left.
