- ABV 43%
Amongst the nine distilleries around Dufftown, Mortlach meaning 'bowl-shaped valley", is the oldest. The second is Glenfiddich, founded by William Grant who was production manager at Mortlach.The distillery was created by James Findlater and two of his friends, Donald McIntosh and Alexander Gordon on a ground hired from the Earl of Mactuff. The creation date is not known for certain, but the license was officially delivered in 1823 making it the first legal distillery in Dufftown.
Mortlach was later taken over by John Gordon who marketed its whisky under the name "The real John Gordon". More recently, the distillery has been sold to Johnnie Walker & co. Walker joined DCL which became SMD before being integrated with UDV. A new distillery was built in 1964, but the old stills were still used. Presently, Mortlach is owned by Diageo. It remains a key component for the Johnnie Walker blends.
The water used in the mash comes from the nearby Conval Hills and is said to add a distinctive note to the malt. The style is typically masculine, full bodied and plush with dried fruits. This release from independent bottlers, Gordon & Macphail offers outstanding value for money.
