The distillery remained with the family for six generations until it was purchased by Seagrams in 1930. Only two years later it was then sold again to Hiram Walker (who already owned Benriach) and stayed with them until it became part of Allied Domecq’s portfolio in 1998 when they merged with Pedro Domecq. After being sold off again to Pernod-Ricard in 2001, it became one of their premium single malt offerings alongside brands such as Glenlivet at global scale.
