SKU code: 12204_700ml

Built in 1893 by John Duff, who also built Glenlossie 20 years prior and would go on to build Benriach, Longmorn is a distillery rich in history and excellent whisky. It was the location where Masataka Taketsuru, founder of Nikka, trained in the 1920’s and would prove to be a valuable distillery in the production of Seagram’s blends through the 1970’s. Longmorn has only had a few single malt releases throughout its lifetime, often being a core component of the Chivas Regal blends seen today. Currently owned by Pernod-Ricard, Longmorn was refurbished in 2012 and produces 4.5 million litres of whisky each year. Primarily seen through independent bottlers, Longmorn is a single malt heralded for its complexity of fruit and malt and often a beloved distillery by many collectors.
