About the Distillery
Mannochmore sits in the heart of the Glenlossie Distillery complex. The distillery is similar in design to other Diageo distilleries that were built in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Mannochmore was the malt behind the ‘Loch Dhu” brand.
The distillery was founded in 1971 by John Haig & Co. Up to 2008 the distillery only produced for twelve months and then had a break of twelve months alternating with the nearby Glenlossie distillery, with which it shares the employees.
Since 2008 the Mannochmore Distillery operates of its own crew.
The water to make its spirit comes from Bardon Burn and the malt is purchased from Castle Head Maltings in Elgin. The distillery equipment is run on steam.
