Glenmorangie Distillery is situated near the town of Tain in Ross-shire, in the Northern Highlands. It is celebrated for its smooth, complex whiskies and its innovative approach to whisky making.

The distillery was officially founded in 1843 by brothers William and John Matheson. However, the site was previously used for brewing and distilling as early as the 1730s. Glenmorangie has a long history of whisky production and has been a pioneer in various aspects of the industry. Glenmorangie is currently owned by The Glenmorangie Company Ltd., which is a subsidiary of the French luxury goods group LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton). This acquisition has helped Glenmorangie expand its global presence and marketing.

Production Style & Core Range
Glenmorangie is known for its tall stills, which are the tallest in Scotland at over 5 meters (16 feet) in height. This unique feature allows for a lighter and purer spirit. The distillery uses water from the Tarlogie Springs, which adds to the character of the whisky. Glenmorangie offers a diverse core range of whiskies. Glenmorangie Original 10 Year Old is the flagship expression, known for its smooth and mellow flavour with notes of citrus, vanilla and almonds. Glenmorangie Lasanta is aged for 12 years and finished in sherry casks, offering rich, spicy and nutty flavours.
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban is aged for 12 years and finished in port casks, with rich, chocolatey notes and a smooth finish. Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or is finished in Sauternes wine casks, this whisky is known for its sweetness and dessert-like qualities. Glenmorangie 18 Year Old has deep, complex flavours of dried fruit, honey, and nuts.

Dr. Bill, Innovation & Pioneering Work
Glenmorangie has been at the forefront of experimentation with different cask finishes. Dr. Bill Lumsden, the Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation & Whisky Stocks, is known for his innovative approach to whisky making, including the use of various wine, rum and other types of casks for finishing.
