Tasting Notes- Mortlach 13 Year Old 1998 Vintage
Sorry not available at present.
The Thompson brothers have a successful whisky bar in Dornoch where they originally started making their own whisky and gin on site at Dornoch Castle Hotel, Dornoch in Speyside.
In 2016, 250 whisky lovers from around the world were keen to buy the new spirit from the Dornoch distillery. Success followed again in 2017 when the team introduced their new single malt whisky and also launch the Thompson’s Brother’s Organic Highland gin, now available in 11 international markets.
Success had meant they needed to expand into a larger site for storage and distilling space.
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 amongst 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.
