Glen Moray Whisky
Elgin West Brewery was converted into the Glen Moray distillery in 1897. It is situated in the heart of Speyside on the banks of the river Lossie in Elgin, Moray. Most unusually for the time some of the first new-make spirit was filled into wide ranging casks types like ex-sherry and ex-Marsala wine.
New owners, La Martiniquaise bought the distillery in 2008 and have massively increase it’s production capacity. There are now sixteen stainless steel washbacks and nine spirit stills. Sales of Glen Moray have grown greatly too with a report of 1.7 million bottles sold in 2020. As expected the range has also grown with a new release launched every year.
La Martiniquaise also use some of the whisky in their Cutty Sark and Label 5 blended whisky. As well as an extensive core range Glen Moray is also popular with independent bottlers. Not shy of innovation the distillery launched the ‘Curiosity Collection’ in 2018 which looks at how more unique casks can influence the style of it’s single malt.
