Glen Moray Distillery
Our single malt whisky has been distilled on the banks of the River Lossie since 1897, just outside Elgin, the historic capital of Speyside. The area around Elgin is known as the Laich of Moray.
In its long history, the award winning Glen Moray has been distilled in time honoured fashion, by hand. Never rushed or forced, always in balance, steady and with care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This constancy and dedication is truly characterised by Glen Moray’s people.
In its lifetime, the distillery has known only 5 distillery managers. Know-how, myths and trade secrets passed though the generations to ensure every drop has the same light character as the last.

You will gain an unforgettable insight into how water and barley are transformed into 'the water of life'.
Glen Moray is a quality malt whisky from the heart of Speyside. We use ex bourbon barrels sourced from North America to mature Glen Moray and these produce a whisky with rich and spicy characteristics. These casks deliver a superior product that has a smooth and well-rounded taste.
Being in the Laich O’Moray the distillery benefits from the regions milder climate as it is afforded protection from the Cairngorm and Monadhliath Mountains. The distillery's geographic location and also sitting in a hollow below the water table, means that the warehousing has the perfect conditions to allow for the Angels to take more of a share of our whisky than they will of others.
Glen Moray is available in a range of ages and vintages that will appeal to new malt drinkers as well as connoisseurs looking for something a bit more special.
