Mark will show you all the steps of the whisky making process at Longmorn Distillery.
Longmorn Distillery takes its name from the small church of St Marnoch who was one of the missionaries who brought Christianity to the Picts of Moray in the 7th Century. The name evolved over the centuries to become Longmorn. The distillery was founded by John Duff, one of the great personalities of the Victorian whisky industry, who saw the opportunity offered by a boom in the market for Scotch whisky. In 1894, he joined Charles Shirres and George Thomson to form the Longmorn Distillery Company. This was the perfect location to make this complex, generous single malt whisky. The natural ingredients that create Longmorn give it its unique Speyside character; water from the local springs and barley from the Laigh of Moray. The power for the distillery was originally provided entirely by a large water wheel which is still there today, though no longer in use.
Upgraded and expanded in recent years, the distillery remains faithful to the style of single malt whisky made here since the days of John Duff when the whisky produced at Longmorn was immediately recognised for its exceptional quality. It has always been highly prized by whisky blenders and enjoyed by connoisseurs.
“Something magical happens in those fat, plain stills. It is they which create Longmorn’s astonishing complexity. It is sweet, it is fruity, it has depth, it has breadth. It is fragrant, yet powerful. It is gentle and honeyed in American oak barrels, richer and more spicily expansive in good quality hogsheads, darkly rich and powerful in ex-sherry butts. No wonder blenders love it.” Dave Broom, Whisky Writer
