Tomintoul Distillery, Speyside

Tomintoul Distillery, Speyside

Established in 1965, Tomintoul Distillery is located near the village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands of Scotland. It's located in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, and the area surrounding Tomintoul Distillery is one of astounding natural beauty.

This natural environment, combined with the fresh mountain air of the Cairngorms, the soft, pure water from the Ballantruan spring, and the tall and mighty stills of Tomintoul, contributes to creating our exceptionally smooth and well-balanced whisky.

Master Distiller Robert Fleming, a fourth-generation Speyside distiller, has been the custodian of Tomintoul for more than 30 years. Robert and his dedicated and passionate team are responsible for crafting every drop of Tomintoul Single Malt. They use traditional production techniques that stretch back hundreds of years to produce a wide range of award-winning Tomintoul Single Malt Scotch Whiskies.

Speyside Whisky

To some Speyside represents the jewel in whisky’s crown. Speyside is the home of legal whisky production and it’s best known examples. Around the world Glenlivet, Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenrothes and Glenfarclas typify all that whisky, at it’s best has to offer. At it’s heart running from the Monadhliath mountains north to the sea, is the River Spey. It is the fastest flowing river in Britain, and also well known for its salmon fishing.

Speyside is the principal whisky-producing region: Speyside has within it some forty-six operating distilleries - over half the total number in the entire Scotland.

Speysides are essentially sweet whiskies. They have little peaty character They are typically highly perfumed, feminine and elegant.

The classical nature of Speyside’s malts means that a number of the finest malts are used almost exclusively for blending. It is the top Speysider’s that give good blends their ‘Top Dressing’. 

Malts such as Mortlach, Glen Elgin, Strathmill and Benrinnes are rarely found as distillery bottlings, however when individual casks are tracked down by independent bottlers such as our Own Selection Single Malt Whiskies the resultant whisky can be quite wonderful.
