Ardbeg
Ardbeg Distillery

Region: Islay Est: 1798

For over 200 years, Ardbeg has been produced on the small, remote Scottish Isle of Islay. Considered to be among the peatiest Scotches in the world, Ardbeg has been voted “World Whisky of the Year” four times in the last seven years. One unique aspect to the aura of Ardbeg is the fact that the distillery sits very close to the sea, infusing the whisky with a natural salty, iodine character while it matures.

Balblair

Region: Highland Est: 1790

Since 1790, the Balblair Distillery has been aging ever so perfectly on the coast of Dornoch Firth in Northern Scotland. One notable aspect of the Balblair story is a portfolio of Single Malt Scotch whisky that’s exclusively Vintages–with bottles not marked with an age statement, but simply with the year that the whisky was laid down. The Vintages contain the core characteristics of apricots, oranges, spices, floral notes and green apples.

The BenRiach
The BenRiach Distillery

Region: Speyside Est: 1898

Located in the "Heart of Speyside," in the North-East region of Morayshire, BenRiach displays all the traditional charm of a Speyside distillery. Built by John Duff in 1898, this distillery was operational for just two years before the "Pattison Crash" in 1900 resulted in a period of hardship for the entire whisky industry. As a result, BenRiach fell silent, and remained so for 65 years. When reopened, the vision was to establish BenRiach as a premium, high-quality Speyside malt. Today, BenRiach portrays its own uniqueness through the methods used to craft the whisky, the ingredients, the distinctive copper stills and the casks selected for maturation.

Caol Ila
Caol Ila Distillery

Region: Islay Est: 1846

Caol Ila, pronounced “Cull Eela,” is a remote distillery situated on the rugged eastern coast, where it has remained hidden from view since 1846. However difficult it may be to reach, generations of islanders at the distillery have produced fine, smoky whisky that is well worth exploring.

Compass Box

Region: Blended Est: 2000

Back in 2000, John Glaser believed there were too many companies making and selling Scotch whisky the same way. An American, transplanted to the UK, he set up a different kind of Scotch whisky company, based on the long-lost model of the Scotch whisky blending house, but with a forward-looking approach and an unrelenting desire to create quality. He originally launched the business from his kitchen, but today, more than a decade later, Compass Box has an office and Blending Room in London, its own stocks of maturing whiskies in Scotland and just over a dozen employees.

The Dalmore

Region: Highland Est: 1839

The Dalmore story began in 1839 in a place where no one else dared to venture for Scotch–the banks of the Cromarty Firth. Distilled in the path of the harsh winds of the North Sea, The Dalmore braves the conditions because the natural resources of the area produced a special whisky known for its unique character and taste. A variety of exceptional casks–including Marsala barrels from Sicily–infuse The Dalmore with the rich, warm flavors that Scotch lovers have come to expect over the last 150 years.

Dalwhinnie
Dalwhinnie Distillery

Region: Highland Est: 1898

Made in the highest and coldest working distillery in Scotland, with water from a loch at 2,000 feet, Dalwhinnie whisky thrives on extreme conditions – creating a liquid as sweet and accessible as its Highland home is remote.

The GlenDronach
The GlenDronach Distillery

Region: Highland Est: 1826

Founded in 1826 by James Allardice, The GlenDronach Distillery is situated in the Scottish Highlands. Producing richly sherried single malts for nearly 200 years, it all began with Allardice’s “Guid GlenDronach” single malt. In 1968, GlenDronach’s popularity grew as it was released as a single malt brand for the first time. The BenRiach Distillery Company became GlenDronach’s new owner in 2008, and it was named the Global Whisky Distiller of the Year at the 2015 Icons of Whisky Awards.

Glenmorangie
Glenmorangie Distillery

Region: Highland Est: 1843

The Glenmorangie story began in 1700s with a thriving brewery at the Morangie Farm in Scotland. But when a distillery manager purchased the land, he poured the last of the beers and converted the brewery to a distillery. In addition to being known for its single malt scotch whisky, Glenmorangie is home of the tallest stills in Scotland at over 26 feet–the same height as a giraffe. The brand’s water source, Tarlogie Springs, is the most prized asset of Glenmorangie, as the rain has been filtered through layers of limestone and sandstone for 100 years to provide a raw ingredient unique amongst Highland distilleries.

Johnnie Walker

Region: Blended Est: 1820

In early 19th century Scotland, a young grocer named John Walker grew unsatisfied with the unreliable whiskies available at the time. He wanted his customers to enjoy the same quality and flavor in their whisky year after year. So he began to blend the best whiskies together until he produced a whisky he was happy to put his name to: Johnnie Walker.

Lagavulin
Lagavulin Distillery

Region: Islay Est: 1816

In 1742 there were at least ten illicit stills at Lagavulin, and it would be another 74 years until local farmer John Johnston founded the first legal distillery, in sight of Dunyvaig Castle. Its name may have changed over the years, but the quiet power of peat and smoke that pervades this masculine malt has not.

Oban
Oban Distillery

Region: Highland Est: 1794

For two centuries Oban’s bustling fishing village has sat on the frontier of the West Highlands and the Islands, at the meeting place of land and sea. One of Scotland’s oldest licensed distilleries, Oban’s sheltered harbor is perfect for two things – seafaring and whisky making.

Old Pulteney

Region: Highland Est: 1826

Founded in 1826, Old Pulteney rests its roots in Wick, a small, historical town, once known as the herring capital of Europe. While Wick’s seafaring lifestyle has come and gone, the spirit lives on in Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky - long renowned as “The Maritime Malt." As one of Scotland’s most northerly mainland distilleries, Old Pulteney characterizes itself by its spirit of endurance passed down throughout centuries.

Talisker
Talisker Distillery

Region: Island Est: 1830

Talisker is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. Few whiskies tell the story of their origin better than Talisker. Its smell and taste instantly connect the drinker with the rugged environment – like a warm welcome from a wild sea. It’s a powerhouse: challenging but adored, once discovered rarely left.

Tomatin

Region: Highland Est: 1897

Established in 1897 during the Victorian Whisk Boom, Tomatin’s whisky production is thought to date back to the 1400s. The name “Tomatin,” which translates to “Hill of the Juniper Bush,” is thought to give insight into the area’s history of illicit whisky production. Juniper wood gives off no smoke while burning, and was often used by illicit distillers attempting to conceal their practice. Tomatin went from two stills in 1956 to 23 by 1974, making it the largest distillery in Scotland at the time. That success, however, came to a halt in the 1980s, and Tomatin underwent two liquidations. Takara Shuzo – Japan’s largest drinks producer and Tomatin’s biggest customer – joined forces with the respected trading company Okura and purchased Tomatin, forming the Tomatin Distillery Company Ltd and thus creating the first fully Japanese-owned Scottish distillery in 1986. Today, Tomatin’s range of single malts is sold in more than 50 export markets.
