Convalmore began distilling in 1894 at Dufftown on Speyside, drawing its name and water from the nearby Conval Hills. The owner adopted as a motif the bluebell, but in 1909 it was a fire that made the distillery picturesque. The Dufftown News reported “snow commenced to fall and the effect of the burning building on the white landscape provided a striking picture”. Open again a year later, the distillery closed in 1985.
