Tormore Distillery was founded in 1958, and was the first distillery built in Speyside in 20th century. It is arguably the most attractive distillery in Scotland. The distillery is currently owned by Pernod Richard.
Gordon & MacPhail are one of the biggest and oldest independent bottlers in Scotland, and have been a family run business since 1895. They source the best barrels on the market to age the spirit from various distilleries, and all of their offerings are of tremendous quality, never chill-filtered and no caramel color added. They are also owners of the Benromach distillery – the smallest distillery in Speyside, but one that is famous for producing one of the best artisan single malt Scotch whiskys.
