TomintoulSingle Malt Whisky
The distillery is owned by the independent company Angus Dundee Distillers, which bought it from the Whyte & Mackay group in 2000. ADD has expanded the core range in 2008 to include a 12 year old 'Peaty Tang' expression (the distillery also makes a heavily-peated malt whisky called Old Ballantruan) and a 1976 vintage, the oldest Tomintoul yet released.
From the website:
Beautifully located near to the village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands of Scotland in the prestigious Glenlivet Estate at the heart of the Speyside region, lies Tomintoul Distillery.
In the middle of the last century it took more than a year to find the purest of water sources for use in the malt whisky making process. Finally, the search located the Ballantruan Spring, an exceptional source of the purest of waters nestling in the Cromdale Hills. The quest over, Tomintoul Distillery was built close to the Ballantruan Spring and adjacent to the majestic River Avon.
The natural environment, high altitude, pure air and the exclusive use of the outstanding quality of water from the Ballantruan Spring, combine to enhance the superb quality of Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet Single Malt – the gentle dram.
Tomintoul single malt whisky is a testament to our master distiller, Robert Fleming, whose family has been making whisky in the Speyside Glenlivet region for four generations. Inspired by tradition, he has produced a single malt of unique quality, which is now available in six expressions, each of which is smooth and mellow.
Tomintoul Distillery has been owned by Angus Dundee Distillers since 2000.
Tomintoul Distillery was built in the mid 1960s. At the height of around 350m (1165 feet), Tomintoul is the highest village in the Highlands. Tomintoul Distillery is located in the Glenlivet Estate at Ballantruan on the east side of the River Avon and in the valley between the Glenlivet Forest and the hills of Cromdale.
The distillery is capable of producing over three million litres of alcohol per annum as well as having:
A storage capacity of approximately 116,000 casks
Extensive stocks of quality whisky, dating back over 40 years
Highly skilled and experienced staff
Quality control which is maintained to the highest standards in the industry
Tomintoul distilling equipment includes a semi-Lauter mash tun, six stainless steel washbacks and four stills (with boil balls in their necks). The spirit is matured in a combination of American oak bourbon casks and refill hogshead with some Oloroso sherry butts.
The distillery now operates at full capacity.
