Kininvie Distillery is situated close to the River Fiddich in Scotland's Speyside whiskey region and opened in 1990 to meet the ever-increasing demand for William Grant's blends of scotch whiskey. Kininvie is rather unusual since its mash tun and washbacks reside in a neighbouring distillery and thereby Kininve Distillery consists of a still house containing nine stills. Kininvie malt whiskey was released under the name Hazelwood and the first official bottling of Kininvie Distillery single malt whiskey was released in 2006 to celebrate of the 105th birthday of Mrs Janet Sheed Roberts, granddaughter of William Grant. The only other official bottlings are limited edition produced to celebrate her 107th birthday in 2008 and her 110th birthday in August 2011. More recent release is the Kininvie 17 Year Old distilled in 1996.
