Dufftown Whisky Museum


The Whisky Museum is in Dufftown, Speyside, which claims to be “Malt Whisky Capital of the World”. Sited on the banks of the river Fiddich, Dufftown was at one time home to nine whisky distilleries with six currently active, including the well known Glenfiddich.

The museum was opened in 2002 by Charles MacLean, a prolific writer on whisky. Its exhibits include illicit stills and other tools and equipment used for whisky manufacture. The museum was forced to vacate its first site in 2009 and has plans to expand its current small premises.

I have a bottle of ” Illicit Still” whiskey in an original porcelain bottle in the original navy blue box, given to me from my brother Murdo MacLean in the 1980s. I am trying to find out any information on it, as I am older and would like to just know some history or worth. I live now in Lytham At Anne’s, originally from Edinburgh and Michigan USA. I would be thankful for anything you could tell me. The bottle has never been opened.
