The Softer Side of Highlands

Since 1897, there has been a quiet revolution unfolding in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

The naturally soft water of the Alt-na-Frith burn is introduced to tender Scottish barley and, later, from the tall, slim copper stills of the Tomatin Distillery a mellow, fruity spirit is born.

Gentle maturation in carefully selected casks lets the subtle character of this distinctive single malt emerge, ensuring that the softer side of the precious spirit is never overpowered.
