Located on the eastern edge of the Monadhliath Mountains, Tomatin has a feeling of remoteness about it. Illicit stills are part of the history of whisky distilling in Scotland; as a distilling site, illicit or otherwise, Tomatin reaches back to the 15th Century when drovers, bringing their cattle over high mountain passes to the market at Tomatin, filled their flasks from a still at the Old Laird’s House, beside the current distillery buildings – perhaps the fore-runner to the current visitor centre!
Tomatin 15 Year Moscatel Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky was distilled in 2003, moved to Moscatel barriques in 2013, and finished for 5 years. It is bottled Non-chill filtered and natural color.
