The Distillery

Affectionately known as ‘The Beast of Dufftown, Mortlach hails from the dark side of Speyside. Our distillery rests on the Eastern Coast of the Scottish Highlands. With a method unchanged over 120 years known simply as ‘The Way’, Mortlach is distilled precisely 2.81 times, with the spirit drifting through six stills with distinctively different silhouettes.

"Founded in 1823 during an age of great industrial achievement, Mortlach was the first legal distillery in Dufftown, the heart of Speyside."


Mortlach challenges the normal conventions of whisky to create an impossibly rich and seductive single malt. Its character harks back to a time when whiskies were bigger, bolder and darker. The exceptional flavour bridges the gap between mellow and smokey.
