However the distillery is located on the banks of river Lossie, back in the 1970s and 80s bottlings of Glen Moray carried Glenlivet suffix on their labels.
In fact Glen Moray was the furthest-flung distillery, which used Glenlivet name. The practice was abandoned in the early 1990s. The 5 years old Glen Moray Pure Malt (by today’s standards single malt) had been bottled exclusively for Italian market in 1970s and 80s. Those days the Italians developed taste for young single malts and Glen Moray competed with other 5 years olds, such as Aberlour, Glen Grant and Balblair.
