When the site was bought by Glenlivet in 1965, British law had changed to forbid multiple operating distilleries from sharing names, so the newly rebuilt distillery was renamed “Caperdonich”, meaning “secret well”. This time it stayed open for nearly forty years, but in the early 2000s it was closed down again and then demolished in 2010…having weathered the dip of the 80s, Caperdonich was not to have the opportunity of living through the current whisky boom. The whisky produced there was used for the Chivas Regal blends, and only a handful of independent releases showcase it as a single malt.
