(Glenmorangie over ice)
The Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 when a licence was granted to William Matheson to distil whisky. He chose to buy tall gin stills instead of onion-shaped whisky stills and the extra height allows only the lightest, purest, vapours to reach the top, contributing to Glenmorangie’s distinctive complexity, smoothness and layered flavour.
Glenmorangie is made with the benefit of the hard, crystal clear water of Tarlogie Springs which starts as soft Scottish rain, spends a century filtering through limestone then bubbles up close to the Glenmorangie Distillery to be made into whisky.
The Men of Tain are the backbone of the distillery, dedicated craftsmen who turn barley and the pure water of Tarlogie Springs into delicate, delicious Glenmorangie.
Today Glenmorangie single malt whisky is world famous, and has won a multitude of prestigious awards for the quality of its expressions.
And Glenmorangie House is the ideal place to experience Glenmorangie Original Single Malt Whisky, on the land where it is made, with the people who helped to make it. A unique experience for any whisky lover and the most wonderful introduction for those who are new to the joys of the perfect single malt.
If you’re new to Whisky, we can arrange a tasting session for you to discover the depth, complexity and the joys of single malt whisky. Discovering how to “nose” will augment your appreciation of this fine Scottish art form, and unlike wine tasting, swallowing is fully approved of in whisky tasting circles.
Guests to the distillery can see first hand how Glenmorangie is distilled and expertly matured in fine oak casks.
Our famous Whisky Tasting Weekends are the ideal introduction to the subtleties of Glenmorangie single malt whisky. With a trip to the distillery and expert tasting tuition, the weekend encompasses an excellent grounding in the art and appreciation of the ‘water of life’.
