Glentauchers Scotch whisky distillery was established in 1898 by James Buchanan and in association with his Glaswegian whisky broker WP Lowerie, to secure a supply of malt whisky for principally their Black & White Blends.
The distillery was closed 1939-46 during the Second World War due to supply and government restrictions.
Major reconstruction was carried out during 1965-66, which involved new still house, mash house, tun room and a trebling of still capacity from 2 to 6 stills. The distillery ceased floor malting in 1969.
Its owners UDV mothballed the distillery in 1985. However Allied Distillers purchased the distillery in 1989 and distilling restarted in August 1992.
The majority of production is used for blending Ballantines and Teachers Highland Cream.
