Mannochmore distillery has had a brief but successful history. Scottish Malt Distillers founded Mannochmore distillery in 1971 and was managed by John Haig & Company Limited until 1985, at which point it was mothballed due to the big British recession.
The malt used in the production of Mannochmore is unpeated, and the malt is bought from Castle Head Maltings in the town of Elgin. The original barely is handpicked from a selection of Speyside farms, which are famed for the quality of their barley. Aged in a first fill ex-bourbon cask, the bottle you’ll be receiving this month was distilled on October 17th, 2008, and bottled on July 12th, 2021.
