The building really isn't in that bad of condition (I've seen worse!), parts of the Mashtun and other pieces have been taken for the Glen Grant distillery but the stills look passable. I took a tour of it last year during the Speyside Festival, below is a link to pictures I took from within.

The french independent bottler Jean Boyer has bottled it and I think Signatory too.
