From Collins Pocket Reference 'Whisky':
Glenugie was the easternmost distillery in Scotland, located in the Peterhead, the fishing capital of the north-east.
The distillery was first established in the 1830's, and was completely rebuilt in 1875. Although enjoyable, its produce never attained the status of a classic. Glenugie Distillery was closed permanently in 1932 and sold outside the industry. Although there were never any official bottlings under its own label, supplies from the independent merchants are still available

Glenugie Distillery Highlands
The Glenugie distillery in Highlands was another unfortunate casualty of the whisky crisis of 1983-85, and fell in ’83, after 146 years of extremely sporadic production.
Glenugie seemed to be cursed with an inability to produce whisky for longer than a few years at a time: short flurries of activity were surrounded with extensive periods of silence. It also is rather unusual in that Glenugie never released an official bottlings of a Single Malt from the distillery itself, and instead was only acquirable through independent bottlings.
Despite this, Glenugie is often regarded as a sort of ‘hidden gem,’ the few remaining whiskies are highly sought-after and often quite expensive.
