Mortlach Distillery was established in 1823 on the banks of the River Dullan in Scotland’s Speyside whisky region. Mortlach is equipped with  wooden worm tubs, six stills of assorted shapes and sizes and three spirit safes in order to run a unique two and a half times or partial triple distillation process. Mortlach Distillery participates in the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival when distillery tours may be available. Official bottling of Mortlach Distillery single malt whisky are few, however, independent bottlers recognise the great quality of Mortlach whisky particularly following long maturation in sherry casks. Gordon and MacPhail released a stunning bottling of 70 year old Mortlach single cask malt whisky which was distilled in 1938 and matured in a single sherry hogshead until bottling in 2009.
