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.

Visitors can only tour the Tomintoul Distillery by appointment.

Distillery

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.

Product Range

The main Tomintoul commercial range consists of nine expressions. The 10 and 16 year old editions represent the original bedrock of the portfolio.

“Peaty Tang”, is distilled in the traditional manner but, unusually for the Speyside Glenlivet region, it is crafted using peated malted barley to impart a distinctive smoky and heathery flavour. In contrast, the 12 years old Sherry Cask Finish was transferred into Oloroso Sherry butts for the last eighteen months of maturation. The result is a creamy, elegant single malt with hints of Sherry sweetness. Similarly, the 12 years old Portwood Finish spent the last twenty months of maturation “finishing” in Port pipes resulting in a dignified malt with gentle port influence and hints of peppery spice.

The Tomintoul 14 years old, unchillfiltered at 46% vol and with no added colouring is as close as you can get to the notion of “straight from the cask”.

Tomintoul 21 years old was introduced in 2011 to bridge the gap between the 16 and 33 years old versions.

Tomintoul 33 Years old, the oldest release in the gamut, was added to the brand range at the top end of the age spectrum and demonstrates the virtues of supreme quality of taste arising from the direct result of careful maturation in meticulously selected Bourbon casks over a very long period of time.

The 1976 Vintage is a distillation from an exceptional year. Collected from hand-picked casks over 30 years later, it is a jewel amongst single malts.
