Mortlach has been described by Whisky connoisseurs as “The Beast of Dufftown,” for its rich and powerful flavors, produced in an astonishingly complicated and unique distillation process, which commentators have attempted to explain as "2.81 Distilled."


In 1823, Mortlach was the first distillery to be built at Dufftown, now one of the epicenters of Speyside Whisky distilling.

In 2014, it launched four expressions: Rare Old, Special Strength, 18 Years Old and 25 Years Old.

Interesting Facts:

Mortlach's unique distillation process produces a spirit that is 2.81 distilled: precisely calculated to create the highly complex yet balanced distillate. It was audacious to make Whisky this way, and no one has since.

Hidden for 190 years, Mortlach was the first legal distillery in Dufftown, the heart of Speyside.

Nicknamed "The Beast of Dufftown" for its robustness, Mortlach has been a secret among Whisky connoisseurs for decades.
