About the Distillery
The Tomatin distillery was built in 1897 and is one of the highest distilleries in Scotland sitting nearby the Hill of Parting which is where the Jacobite clans settled after their defeat at Colloden.
The distillery was founded by a Japanese company and it is currently owned by a different Japanese company Takara Shuzo and Okura. The water source for this distillery is All-na-Frithe a burn which is found locally. This helps the distillery produce 5,000,000 litres of whisky each year which is the largest of any distillery in Scotland. The still room has 23 stills in total.
The name Tomatin in Gaelic means ‘the hill of bushes’.
What to expect smokey and peaty whisky with a distinctive oak aroma on the nose full of summer fruits and spicy with richness.
This is Craig’s favourite distillery and his best ever single malt was produced at this distillery, the gone but not forgotten Tomatin 30 Years Old.
