The Glenlivet distillery roots can be traced back to 1815, although it is a well known fact that illicit distilling was going on long before then. In 1817 George Smith leased some land at Upper Drumin Farm, he continued illicit distilling to supplement his crofters wage. During 1823 an Excise Act was pushed through by Duke of Gordon – Smith’s landlord – to stop illicit distilling. Gordon then persuaded Smith to take out the first license and he also help set up the distillery at Drumin. The demand for Glenlivet steadily increased resulting in the distillery being rebuilt twice. Today the distillery stands at Minmore, where Rivers Livet and Avon meet.
