MORTLACH DISTILLERY VISIT 2010

An opportunity to visit a distillery of which the whiskies at least are very highly rated by me. A chance to visit Mortlach distillery is one that you have to accept, the distillery isn’t open to the public and the way that the distillery is run, with a partial triple distillation makes that you will have to visit.

If you walk around the distillery, you see a quite beautiful series of buildings. The buildings look quite impressive, that is however also the case with the “inside” of the distillery. It is a very nice distillery and it’s a shame that this in not open for visitors. The distillery was just about to start up again after the silent season. This however didn’t go to well, this however didn’t withhold them from giving a great tour of the distillery.

 

Mortlach was the first of the now famous “Seven Stills of Dufftown”, it was founded in 1823 by James Findlater. A year later partial ownership was acquired by Alexander Gordon and James Macintosh. In 1831 the distillery was sold to John Robertson. The next years meant a lot of changes of ownership, times in which the distillery was silent from time to time, or even was used as a brewery and as a church. In 1851 the newly fitted distillery, was owned by John Gordon and produced “The Real John Gordon”. One or two years later Mortlach was taken over by George Cowie Senior, a railway company surveyor, who later became mayor of Dufftown. In 1895 his son, George Cowie Junior started working in the distillery. In 1897 the number of stills was increased from 2 to 6, a rail link to Dufftown station was also added. In 1923, Alexander Cowie sold the distillery to John Walker & Sons, which in turn became part of Distillers Company Limited (DCL) in 1925. In 1996 a semi-lauter mashtun was installed. The distillery still has traditional dunnage warehouses on their grounds, and the range of worm tubs outside is also still in use

This visit was made as part of the Autumn Spirit of Speyside Festival.
