The true tradition of whisky


Glenmorangie is a distillery that produces single malt whiskies. The particularity of the distillery is that it is equipped with the tallest stills in Scotland. They are 8 meters tall. These giant stills have a direct impact on quality. Local legend claims that alcohol has been produced at this Highland site since the Middle Ages. However, traces of production are only found from 1738. It was therefore on the Morangie farm that William Matheson bought the license in 1843 to legally distil alcohol. It begins with two second-hand stills that have been used to distil Gin. Malt production will not begin until November 1849.

In 1887 the Glenmorangie Distillery Company Ltd was formed. That same year, a major renovation operation took place to transform the Glenmorangie spirits distillery into a modern factory. The distillery was later bought by Macdonald & Muir in 1918. It remained the property of the Macdonald family for 90 years. Like most whisky distilleries in Scotland, Glenmorangie suffered between the end of the first war and the beginning of the 1950s, it had to close its doors temporarily between 1931 and 1936. It was only after the Great Depression that the production of the distillery increases. In 1979, it doubled its production capacity and did the same in 1993.

In order to broaden its product range, Glenmorangie is experimenting with new types of refining in barrels of cognac, madeira or porto, for example. 30% of their production is intended for Blended whiskies. In 2004, the Macdonald family sold the distillery to the French group LVMH.
