One of the more obscure distilleries in Scotland, Macduff has a series of single malt offerings marketed under The Deveron name, although the vast majority of its production goes into blends such as Dewar's and William Lawson. This expression was initially matured in a refill bourbon hogshead before being transferred into an Oloroso hogshead for a secondary period of maturation before being bottled at 23 years of age by The Single Cask.
