Scope and Content Still house from north-west, Pittyvaich Distillery, Dufftown, Moray Pittyvaich Distillery was built in 1975 by Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd next to its sister distillery, Dufftown. The malt whisky produced here was first released onto the market in 1991, and also used in Bell's blends. After being mothballed in 1993, a trial run of gin production was attempted in 1994. The site is now used for testing new barleys. This shows the still room with its copper pot stills and control desk. The desk allows one person to control the distillation process, and monitor the systems in operation. The floor is made of metal grilles, and the walls are fitted with large windows. Computerised systems and modern production equipment have been installed in many distilleries. Many are now run with a fraction of the workforce previously required to maintain and monitor each process, leading to many redundancies and some staff houses being sold off for holiday homes.
