BALVENIE Distillery - Google Maps

Fife Arms in Dufftown - Google Maps

I stayed there for a week in 1960 as a trainer Officer of Customs and Excise. Dufftown was then the most concentrated distillery town in the world. Six active and another used as a giant warehouse.

The distillery we were visiting to find out how the Excise controlled them was The BALVENIE.

We came by railway from Aberdeen and the station was just up the road from Balvenie and the road had been cleared of snow into the town. A nice brisk jaunt.

I remember the local officer's wife cooked some potato scone things just right for the freezing cold......

And the Malt whisky was great
