MannochmoreSingle Malt Scotch Whisky
Mannochmore is a Diageo workhorse distillery, making malt whisky for the Haig and Dimple blends.
Built on the grounds of the company's Glenlossie distillery in 1971, Mannochmore is a high-capacity distillery with a potential production of3.2 million litres/year. It hasn't always been plain sailing, though - the distillery was closedin 1985 during the over-supply crisis and remained silent until 1989.
After production recommenced, workers alternated between Mannochmore and Glenlossie, with each distillery open for six months of the year.Following a further period in mothballs in 1995-97 the distillery re-opened and is currently operating at close to full capacity. There is also a dark grains plant on the site, which converts the distillation by-products of most of Diageo's distilleries into cattle feed.
Mannochmore is notable as being the source distillery for the infamous Loch Dhu, a 'black' single malt marketed in the 1990s. Despite its short lifespan, Loch Dhu is now a cult product with bottles changing hands for hundreds of pounds. This is in stark contrast to the more modestly-priced standard Flora & Fauna 12yo expression, which remains the only official bottling of Mannochmore. Independent bottlings are rare. Mannochmore's house style was described by Michael Jackson as 'Fresh, flowery, dry. Aperitif.'
