Bold is in Mortlach's blood. Behind this beastly range of single malt whiskies is a doctor who dared to blaze trails in a distiller's world. Dr. Alexander Cowie, a man of the world, oversaw the very first spirit distillation of Mortlach, achieved through a completely unique and fiendishly complex process, which he used his scientific acumen to craft.
Used as the cornerstone of the 20th Century's most iconic blends, Mortlach was the best kept secret in the world of whisky for 70 years. A mysterious liquid that's dark and complex, this single malt whisky defied the taste conventions defined by its origin and region; creating bold, full-bodied flavours without smoke.View Product
