ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
Longmorn is a very highly regarded single malt by whisky blenders, and is a key ingredient in premium blends including Chivas Regal.
Due to its top class reputation this makes Longmorn a favourite malt for independent bottlers who select single casks from the distillery, the most premium form of single malt, to yield a small quantity of high quality whisky which takes its own individual flavour from the oak cask in which it matures.
The distillery is on the site of a very early chapel, dating from the 1500's or earlier, just next to another distillery (Benriach). The distillery takes its name from an old Gaelic reference to the church site.
The distillery itself dates from the late 1890's and still retains an old water wheel and steam engine which were used to power the distillery.
