The brothers set about improving transport networks to boost distribution and continued to expand the distillery. In 1872 John "Major" Grant took over the running of the distillery and soon built a second distillery over the road in 1898 but this closed 4 years later - This distillery is now known as Caperdonich after reopening in 1965, but again closing in 2002. In 1952 the Major's Grandson took over the running of the distillery and merged with George & J G Smith forming The Glenlivet and Glen Grant Distillers. A few more ownership changes over the years happened and in 2006 Gruppo Campari bought the distillery.
