Scottish Malt Distillers, Elgin
Banff comes from a now closed distillery originally founded in 1824
a mile outside the old royal town that Alfred Barnard later thought
the most fashioable seaport in the North of Scotland.
This bright gold, soft bodied Highland 21 years old starts clean,
and nutty on the nose then yields creamy, digistive biscuit flavours
that dry slightly into a sharper, medium lenght finish, all oat cakes,
bitter walnuts and ginger marmalade

BANFF

Banff, Banffshire. Licentiehouder: Slater, Rodger Limited. Eigendom van The Distillers Company Ltd. (D.C.L.). In1983 gesloten en ontmanteld.

De distilleerderij werd gesticht in 1824 door Major James McKilligan bij Mill of Banff, vlakbij Colleonard Farm.
Major James McKilligan overleed in 1837.

Zijn opvolger was Alex Macaky en in 1852 werd James Simpson eigenaar samen met zijn zoon James Junior.

In dat zelfde jaar bouwde James Junior een nieuwe distilleerderij te Inverboyndie, een mijl ten zuid-westen vanBanff gelegen, naast de spoorlijn die in 1859 was geopend.

Op 9 Mei 1877 werd de distilleerderij totaal door brand verwoest, met uitzondering van de lagerpakhuizen en de mouterij. Er werd snel herbouwd en in Oktober kon men al weer produceren
.
In 1885
stonden er zes ketels.
In November 1898
werd Banff een Limited company
met een kapitaal van £ 72.000.
In 1921
werd de te Londen gevestigde
Mile End Distillery Company,
een dochter onderneming van de
bierbrouwersTaylor Walker een grote
aandeelhouder.
Eén van de lagerpakhuizen werd
verbouwd tot een blending en bottel
fabriek.

Maar de magere jaren rond 1920 waren zo slecht voor Banff dat de distilleerderij in liquidatie ging in Maart 1932 en Banff werd overgenomen door The Distillers Company Ltd voor £ 50.000.

Op 16 Augustus 1941 werd Banff gebombardeerd door een alleen vliegende Duitse Junkers JU 88 bommenwerper.
Lagerpakhuis nummer 12 werd getroffen en honderden vaten met whisky explodeerden. The Banffshire Journal melde dat rivieren van blauw vuur uit de distilleerderij kwamen, eenden
ganzen en andere watervogels waren dronken of werden verzwolgen door de vloed van vuur, en koeien konden niet worden gemolken omdat ze niet meer op hun poten konden staan.

Na de tweede wereldoorlog werd de produktie weer opgestart.

Op 3 Oktober 1959 was er een enorme explosie, tijdens het solderen van de koperen distilleerketel. Er was een enorme schade en het nam weken tijd om alles te repareren.

Op 31 Mei 1983 werd Banff gesloten en waren dertien mensen zonder werk. De ontmanteling begon in 1985. Het laatst overgebleven lagerpakhuis werd op 11 April 1991 door brand verwoest

.
Rond 1965 zijn er tot tweemaal toe plannen geweest om op deze plaats weer een distilleerderij te bouwen, waarvan één van de D.C.L, de andere maal door een groep plaatselijke zakenmensen.
Zo goed als de gehele produktie van Banff was bestemd voor blenders. Banff had twee ketels en het water kwam van een bron op de Fiskaidly boerderij.

THE OLD MALT CASK 50o
Douglas Laing & Co, Ltd
Douglas House 18, Lynedoch Crescent, Glasgow G 36 £ Q.
In 1949 Fred Douglas Laing established Douglas Laing & Co primarily as a blender and bottler for his Scotch Whisky blends The King of Scots and House of Peers, which are available today internationally.
Large stocks and reserves of aging Malts in particular, were laid down by Mr. Laing, many being guarded for 25 - 30 years specifically for the older blends such as the 25 and 30 Year Old KING OF SCOTS.
With more than 50 different Malts in stock, over the last 50 years from filling programme, it was obvious that the Malt Master would have certain favourites. These have variously been chalked off the times of regular quality control, as being of particular qualitative interest; both commercially, and for the pleasure of the Directors. It has been their particular perk, benefit and privelege to nose and taste some of the finest quality samples indicative of the Distillers's art.
It was judged by the two current owners/directors (sons of the founder, so nepotism is not dead!) that some of these stocks were 'too good to blend'. And so the OLD MALT CASK selection was developed in 1999 to extend those perks and benefits beyond the Director's tasting suite!
Initially it was felt that 50 different Malts commemorating the Company's 50th Anniversary would be approciate. That tally has now been exeeded but our preferred strenght of 50 X ale/vol is maintained. We believe this strenght creates a fine, round, full quality for various Malts when taken 'neat'. It also allows the regular consumer to know precisely how much or little water should be added to this artisan and craftman's distillate.
These selected Malt Whiskies have waited many years to reach their classic heights of qua-lity. Not only with your health in mind, but with a view to greater enjoyment, may we suggest that in the style of the founder, whose signature endorses your Malt, you enjoy its glass leisurely and slowly.
Douglas Laing.

Process water came from springs on Fiskaidly farm, cooling water from the Burn of Boydine.The mill was a King of Nailsworth and was the only one in the industrie.

Located on the Moray Coast, in distillery terms Banff was situated between Macduff and Glenglassaugh. In its early days, when still owned by the Simpson family, a single malt was bottled under the name Old Banff and supplied to theHouse of Commons. In the DCL era, it provided fillings for blends. There are very occasional bottlings, most notably within Diageo’s now discontinued Rare Malts range. The whisky had a slight smoky tinge underneath perfumed notes, a distinct apple note and the light oiliness of many of these older distilleries.

Banff could be considered Scotland’s most onomatopoeic distillery. Its entire history was littered with times when it went‘banff!” and erupted into flames.

The original distillery was built in the Royal Burgh in 1824 by one Major James McKilligan before passing into the hands of the Simpson family. In 1863, James Simpson Jr. closed it down and resumed distilling at a new site at Inverboyndie, closer to the railway line.

Then the jinx started. In 1877, the distillery buildings were destroyed in a blaze. Undeterred, the Simpsons had rebuilt the plant and started production within six months. The family remained at the helm until 1932, by which time the economic downturn and subsequent drop in demand for whisky forced the firm into liquidation. That year it was bought by SMD (the malt distilling arm of DCL) but remained closed from then until after World War Two.

Its bad luck continued when, on the night of 16 August 1941, the distillery was strafed and bombed by theLuftwaffe. A warehouse exploded, sending casks flying into the air and a river of whisky flooding out over the fields and into the river. There was considerable devastation and tales of drunken cows that were incapable of being milked the next day.

Production resumed post war, but the jinx struck again inOctober 1959 when during the silent season there was an explosion in the still house which destroyed the spirit still and much of the distillery – amazingly no-one was hurt.

Banff started up yet again and ran until 1983 when the distillery buildings and warehouses began to be demolished.  Just before the final warehouse was due to be knocked down, it caught on fire. It seems like the most appropriate manner forScotland’s unluckiest distillery to leave the scene.
