About Mannochmore

An integral part of some of the world’s best-loved blends, Mannochmore whisky is perfumed and floral, like a fine white wine. Built next to its older sister distillery Glenlossie, Mannochmore is the only distillery to share a location – and sometimes a workforce – with another distillery. Curiously, despite their close relationship, the two whiskies are completely unique. Mannochmore is a relatively recent addition to the area and the collection. Built on the site of the Glenlossie distillery in 1971, it draws its water from the Bardon Burn – whose ancient beds and banks contributes to the whisky’s direct personality. Another relatively unknown Speyside, Mannochmore often adds its clean, dry and direct flavour to blends, and has come into its own in recent years

Appellation: Speyside

Speyside is located within the Scottish Highlands, and is named as its own region due to the large number of Scotch whisky distilleries operating in a small area (i.e. 84 working distilleries including some of the world’s most famous) who produce whisky in their own distinctive style. Slightly sweeter and often richer in style, Speyside is the perfect region for beginners and connoisseurs alike.

There is no doubt about it, Speyside is a very special region indeed. Over half of Scotland’s single malt whisky distilleries can be found within this one geographical area, a fertile valley of the River Spey. A traditional Speyside single malt whisky would not be dissimilar to the Highland whisky, with a robust character and hints of the well-known peated flavour. However in recent times, a much broader spectrum has evolved from light and grassy whiskies to rich and sherried expressions. Usually lacking the peaty punch of the Islay and Highland Drams, these whiskies are difficult to pigeonhole. There are no definitive rules as to the characteristics of Speyside whisky, especially as age often brings increased body and most are matured in either ex-bourbon or ex-sherry casks which adds depth and complexity.

We certainly believe that there's a dram for everyone in Speyside!
