Tomatin Legacy

Established in 1897, Tomatin Distillery found itself nestled in the serene and picturesque surroundings of Tomatin, an isolated haven that seemed almost tailor-made. However, with a scarcity of local labor, the area was predominantly inhabited by wandering shepherds and cattle drovers. In response, the company embarked on a construction project aimed at providing housing for its workforce. Since then, the distillery has become an integral part of the local community, with the community reciprocating its importance to the distillery. This enduring legacy is evident today, as Tomatin remains among the select distilleries that prioritize providing a home for its dedicated craftsmen.

Time spent maturing in Bourbon barrels and Virgin Oak casks imparts a delicate sweetness to The Tomatin Legacy, a non-peated Scotch renowned for its enticing aromas of vanilla bean, white chocolate, and cinnamon. Upon tasting, gentle waves of fresh fruit intermingled with hints of ginger dance on the palate, culminating in a light and refreshing finish.

Tomatin Distillery

This distillery is located on the village of the same name some 26 km south of Inverness. It was built in 1897 and like many distilleries at the time it went through difficult periods. It went bankrupt in 1906 and remained closed for three years. When the distillery was bought over in 1909 it went through the usual periods of crisis and success that the industry, as a whole, experienced. Its production capacity was expanded four times between 1956 and 1974. When it was expanded for the fourth time it became Scotland's biggest distillery although it never operated at full capacity. 

The distillery went into liquidation in 1986 and it was promptly acquired by Japanese group Takara Shuzo (its current owners). Tomatin became the first distillery in Scotland to be owned by a Japanese company. Eleven pot stills were decommissioned in 2000 and the distillery shifted its focus to single malt whisky production. One high quality blended whisky is also produced: The Antiquary. 

The distillery pays lots of attention to the wood used during maturation.
