The Cragganmore Distillery was founded in 1869.
It is named after the hill located behind the distillery,
Craggan Mor Hill. This highly regarded distillery was built
from the 'greenstone' that was quarried from this same hill.
Its water comes from springs located in the same area. Cragganmore
had a most impressive beginning, having been built by perhaps
the most experienced distiller of the time. John Smith, founder,
had been the manager of Macallan, Glenlivet and Wishaw distilleries
and had been the lessee of Glenfarclas Distillery as well.
Cragganmore was constructed with a private rail access to
the Speyside railway. It was the first distillery to take
advantage of rail support.
