Glenury Royal is thought to have been founded in 1825. It's Royal suffix was awarded due to the close friendship its founder, Captain William Barclay, had with William IV. Based in the pretty Aberdeenshire seaside town of Stonehaven, Glenury's history is relatively mundane - a long-period of being family run, a few take-overs, an expansion in the 1960s - before being closed by its last owner DCL during the decimation of old malt distilleries in the 1980s. Whisky from Glenury is rare now, with a few independent releases here and there, a few entries in Diageo's 'Rare Malts' series and, although they are very rare, official releases from the distillery under the name Garron and Downie.
