PRODUCER AND BLENDER OF HIGHLAND REGION SINGLE MALT 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 40 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
• Currently exporting to over 40 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
