Year Founded

Barrel Head


Tomintoul distillery, located in the picturesque Speyside region of Scotland, has a history that dates back to the early 1960s. It was born from the merger of two Glasgow whisky brokers, W&S Strong and Co., and Hay and MacLeod & Co., with a common goal: to meet the rising demand for malt whisky by establishing a new Speyside distillery. Situated just north of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands, the distillery found its home near the Ballantruan Spring and commenced production in 1965. Not content with just one distillery, Tomintoul Glenlivet Distillery Co. acquired Fettercairn in 1971, expanding its reach.

In 1973, Scottish & Universal Investment Trust took over Tomintoul Glenlivet, merging it with blending firm Whyte & Mackay, which it had also acquired the same year. In 1985, Tomintoul Glenlivet became a limited company, and in 2000, it transitioned to independent bottler Angus Dundee, leaving Fettercairn distillery, W&S Strong and Co., and Hay and MacLeod & Co. with Whyte & Mackay.

Today, Tomintoul continues to operate the distillery at Ballindalloch, achieving its initial goal. Under the ownership of Angus Dundee Distillers, PLC, Tomintoul produces malt whisky used in blends as well as bottled as single malts. The distillery offers a range of single malts of varying ages, including a peated malt and a vintage malt.
