A Classic Speyside Malt

Mortlach distillery in Dufftown, the heart of Speyside's distilling industry.

Located in Dufftown, at the heart of Speyside, Mortlach was the first legal distillery built in the area when it was founded in 1823. Mortlach has long been known for innovation and quality, distillery manager Alexander Cowie pioneered an unusual 2.81 times distillation over the standard double distillation technique which many say accounts for the bold, concentrated and spicy style that made Mortlach famous.

Distillery bottlings used to be rare, with the vast majority of the production going into Diageo's Johnnie Walker blends, but a recent rebrand and a relaunch has made a number of different age statements available to lovers of this wonderful Speysider. The Mortlach team have a preference for active Sherry casks when it comes to maturation, to match the full flavour of the spirit. A modern classic, the style would appeal to fans of Glen Grant, Macallan and Glenfarclas.
