Glenmorangie Scotch Whisky Distillery

A view of the from of the Glenmorangie DistillerySource of below text from a press release for the Glenmorangie Distillery

The Glenmorangie Distillery tirelessly and relentlessly produces our delicate, complex spirit; each stage of the production process is precise and perfect in its own right. At its core is a small group of men with immense skill and enviable knowledge.  The craftsmen of Glenmorangie, the patient patrons of quality and excellence, they are the backbone of the Distillery, they are the legendary Sixteen Men of Tain.

A view of all the barrels stored outside of the Glenmorangie DistilleryThese sixteen individuals are the living embodiment of our founder’s vision, the unofficial guardians of our malt, who still, to this day, use the time-honoured, traditional skills that have passed from generation to generation.  Together they ensure Glenmorangie is made in the same, unhurried and uncompromised way it always has been since 1843.

  • The Glenmorangie distillery lies in the far north of Scotland, in the Royal Burgh of Tain, Ross-shire

  • Although originally a brewery, the Glenmorangie distillery has been operating as a whisky distillery since 1843

  • The distillery uses Scottish grown barley that is lightly peated during malting, and water from its Tarlogie Springs - the natural spring that is owned by the distillery together with 650 surrounding acres to protect its purity

  • The water of the Tarlogie Springs has filtered for nearly a century through lime and sandstone, and is unusually hard and rich in minerals

  • The eight elegant Glenmorangie swan-neck stills are the tallest in Scotland, allowing only the lightest and purest of vapours to ascend and condense - giving Glenmorangie its distinctive complexity and layered flavour

  • A view of all the barrels outside of the Glenmorangie DistilleryThe Glenmorangie distillery employs sixteen skilled craftsmen - the ‘Sixteen Men of Tain’.  Their expertise, craft, and traditional values have been passed down the generations.  Glenmorangie continues to be patiently and lovingly produced by sixteen skilled craftsmen today

  • The distillery is renowned as a pioneer in its field uniting tradition with innovation.  It is the master of maturation and is the original pioneer of ‘wood finishes’, developing the process and introducing Port Wood Finish in 1994, followed by the Wood Finish Range in 1996

  • Glenmorangie uses primarily ex-bourbon casks made from the finest, hand-selected American oak to impart more flavour.  It has also pioneered the use of bespoke casks made from slow-growth, air-dried oak from the Ozark Mountains of Missouri

  • Our casks rest in low stone-built buildings with earthen floors, permeated by fresh sea-air, a gentle local climate ensuring a steady path to full maturity
