Mortlach Distillery, Dufftown

Mortlach Distillery, Dufftown, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on Mortlach Distillery in Dufftown, Speyside.

Mortlach has a history dating back to 1823 . The early years were erratic with production interrupted for periods of time. Now part of the giant, Diageo drinks group which controls about 30pct of Scotland’s whisky industry.

There are six stills producing a lightly peated malt using water from the nearby Conval Hills.Total output is about 2.9M litres per annum which ranks the distillery as one of the largest in the Highlands.

Most of the output goes into blends, particularly Johnnie Walker. There is a 16 year old single malt plus older rare bottlings.

Sadly, there is no  visitor centre or regular distillery tours.
