Established in 1843, on the Durnoch Firth by brothers William and John Mathesen the Glenmorangie distillery began production in 1849, though evidence suggests illegal distillation began far earlier. Mothballed between 1931 and 1936 as a consequence of American prohibition and again between 1941 and 1944 a victim of supply shortages during the second world war the distillery has had a troubled history but has enjoyed the status of best selling single malt in Scotland almost continuously since 1983. It’s core lines the Original, 18, and 25 year expressions are joined by a number of wood finishes such as The Quinta Ruban, Nectar d’Or and LaSanta, as well as a number of special editions and super premium whiskies.

Notable for it’s stills, the tallest in Scotland at 26 ft 3 in (8.00 m) tall, with 16 feet 10.25 inches (5.1372 m) necks the distillery’s production is operated by a staff of only 16 the so called Sixteen Men of Tain using water from the Tarlogie Springs and Barley supplied by a co-operative of farmers from he area. Three whisky tours are available including, the original, the Signet and the Heritage tour.
