Glenugie: Foundation: 1831 Debate: “Glen-ugie” Meaning: “valley sink or protected valley* Status: closed 1983

The Distillery Glenugie was the most easterly of Scotland and was situated directly at the sea in the south of the shipbuilding town Peterhead at the mouth of the River Ugie into the North Sea. It was founded under the name Invernettie and only in 1837 was it renamed Glenugie. In the meantime it was only used as a brewery – in most cases it was the other way round that breweries were converted into distilleries. The shops went sometimes up and down, sometimes production sometimes none until they were definitely shut down in 1983 and torn down except for a few buildings.
The whisky is creamy, sweet, fruity, vanilla and slightly smoky.
