A Guide to Mortlach
Mortlach has been described by whisky connoisseurs as “The Beast of Dufftown”, for its rich and powerful flavours, 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 epicentres of Speyside whisky distilling.
In 2014, it launched four expressions: Rare Old, Special Strenght, 18 Years Old and 25 Years Old.
Morlach'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, has been a secret amongst whisky connoisseurs for decades.
