avatar for Mortlach


Nicknamed "The Beast of Dufftown" for it's rich, thick & muscular distillery character arising from its unique 2.81 distillation process, Mortlach was the first legal distillery in Dufftown, the heart of Speyside, founded in 1823. For decades it has been adored by whisky enthusiasts and epicureans across the world, and considered a 'secret weapon' by blenders going into some of the world's finest blends...it has always been a secret, until now.

2014 marked the launch of 4 new luxury expressions from Mortlach distillery: Rare Old, Special Strength, 18 & 25 - winning 'Global Whisky Launch of the Year' with Drinks International in this first year and scooping up gold medals in a plethora of international spirits competitions. The new expressions embody the rich heritage of Mortlach, dating back almost 200 years; they reflect the brave vision of their most celebrated owners, the Scottish civil engineer George Cowie and his son Dr. Alexander Cowie. The pair were responsible for creating the unique and complex process of 2.81 distillation, which characterises the rich flavours of Mortlach.
