1869 was when the Cragganmore distillery was founded by John Smith. Having managed the Macallan, Wishaw & Glenlivet -  Smith was known as one of the most experienced distillers around. 

It was named after the mountain it lays next too, taking advantage of the pure spring water and having easy access due to the railway line being near by. Cragganmore is a very popular brand of whisky today.
