Douglas Laing & Co-Independent Bottlers

Was established in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing. It has been a proudly independent family owned Scotch Whisky business for over 65 years.

 

They believe not adding any colouring or chill filtering their spirits and allow the naturally present oils, fats and enzymes in the whisky to make their own special contribution to its nose, mouthfeel, palate and finish.

Mortlach Distillery

Established in 1823 by James Findlater, Mortlach distillery was founded on the site of an older illicit distillery, becoming the first legal distillery in Dufftown, the heart of Speyside. It was the only distillery in Dufftown for over 60 years, until in 1887 Glenfiddich was founded. In fact, the founder of Glenfiddich, William Grant, worked at Mortlach distillery for 20 years previous to this. However the fate of the distillery changed when, in 1853, George Cowie joined the distillery. In 1867 George Cowie became sole owner of the distillery. His son, Alexander Mitchell Cowie shared his father’s ambition and took control of the distillery, heralding a new chapter in the story of Mortlach.

 

The distillery was expanded in 1897, the 2.81 distillation process was put into place and they added the railway siding known as the ‘Strathspey line’ linking it directly to Dufftown. Alexander’s leadership and pioneering work on whisky creation and production were soon recognised in the leading role he played in Scotland’s esteemed malt whisky world. In 1923 the distillery was bought by John Walker and Sons who then owned just one other distillery, Cardhu distillery. Mortlach has been considered a secret weapon among whisky blenders, going into some of the world’s most treasured and beloved blended whiskies. It’s also highly prized by whisky lovers across the world – highly sought out but, in the past, hardly found. That was until in 2014 the distillery was given the limelight and recognition it not only deserves, but one that it truly has earned with the launch of 4 new luxury single malts.
