James Findlater established Mortlach in 1823 and was the first legal distillery in Dufftown. Mortlach Distillery is a distiller of Speyside single malt Scotch whisky in Dufftown, Moray, Scotland. It was also the only distillery in Dufftown until Glenfiddich was founded in 1887.
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 whom connoisseurs have attempted to explain as ‘2.81 Distilled’. The whisky is a key component in several Johnnie Walker bottlings, while Diageo also markets four of Mortlach’s single malts.
Mortlach 16 years old Distiller’s Dram is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky released by Diageo. First announced in July 2018, this 16 Year single malt is one of three new core whiskies for Mortlach replacing Rare Old, Special Strength, 18 Year and 25 Year which were introduced in 2014. Not to be confused with the discontinued Mortlach 16 Years Flora & Fauna bottling that was released in 1992, this is matured in first-fill and ex-sherry casks to give a wider range of sherry character and bottled at 43.4% ABV.
