Tomatin Scotch Whisky Distillery

The Tomatin Distillery - Highland Single Malt Scotch WhiskyTomatin Scotch Whisky Distillery was built in 1897 and is located in the Speyside region of Scotland just south of Inverness and is one that is very special to Planet Whiskies. It is own by Japanese company Takara Shuzo.

The distillery is a producer and blender of Scotch whisky, boasting a strong core range of single malt whiskies along with a range of popular blends which are sold in over 30 international markets. In the past this distillery was mostly used to make other whiskies in the form of blends ( The Antiquary, The Talisman and Big ‘T’.), but during recent years the distillery has now focus on growing the Tomatin Single Malt brand in its own right.

The distillery produces the Tomatin 10 Year Old Single Malt Whisky, Tomatin 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky and Tomatin 30 Year Old Single Malt Whisky. The contact details for this distillery are Tomatin Distillery, Tomatin, Inverness-shire, IV13 7YT and the contact telephone number is +44 (0)1808 511444.

Illicit stills are an important part of the history of whisky distilling in Scotland. Tomatin as a distilling site, illicit or otherwise, dates back to The 15th century when drovers (men who drove their cattle to market) Would stop to fill their ram’s horns at the still of the old laird’s house. This house was part of the tomatin estate and was located where the Modern day distillery stands.

The below details are taken straight from the Tomatin Press Pack

Tomatin Highland Singe Malt WhiskyProducer and blender of highland Region scotch whisky in tomatin, Located 16 miles south of Inverness.

Whisky production has been central to the way of life in this area most probably since the 15th century and certainly since 1897 when the first formal distillery on the site was established. The settlement of Tomatin was formed only as result of the wealth created by the distillery.

Eighty per cent of our employees still live on site in the distillery houses, so working at Tomatin is more than just a job for our employees; it is a way of life. This in turn is reflected in the quality of whisky produced; every bottle of whisky we make is distilled with pride.

The whisky produced at Tomatin was always sold as ‘bulk whisky’ for use in major blends. But in recent years there has been a change in strategy to grow the Tomatin brand in its own right. The range of single malts is currently sold in over 35 export markets, with additional markets being added all the time.

The company also owns a number of blends, including The Antiquary, The Talisman and Big ‘T’.

• Japanese-owned since 1986
• Sales and distribution run by J & W Hardie Ltd
• Currently exporting to over 35 international markets
• In Gaelic, Tomatin translates as ‘Hill of the Juniper bush’
• One of the last distilleries with a working cooperage
• One of the highest distilleries in Scotland at 315 metres above sea level
