Whisky News - Tomatin Distillery New Product Release - 21st March, 2013

Tomatin Distillery New Product Release - LegacyWhen Tomatin Distillery was established in 1897, the isolated and idyllic setting of Tomatin was almost perfect. However there wasn’t a local workforce; the local inhabitants were scattered shepherds and cattle drovers. The company began a project of construction to accommodate its workforce. Since that time the distillery has been at the heart of the community and the community at the heart of the distillery.

This legacy has continued - Tomatin remains one of the few distilleries to provide a home for its dedicated craftsmen - and is now recognised with a permanent addition to the Tomatin Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky range, “The Tomatin Legacy”.
