The Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted their Morangie farm into a distillery. The distillery lies just north of Tain, on the wind-swept coastline of Easter Ross. Their stills are the tallest found in Scotland as tall as a giraffe, apparently of the same design as those used in the 1880s which were in fact second-hand Gin stills. This means that only the very lightest vapours make it to the top, resulting in a smooth and elegant Scotch Whisky.
Glenmorangie has been an innovator in the industry for years, pioneering cask expressions and experimental bottlings of their exceptional Highland whisky. Often cited as the biggest-selling whisky in Scotland, Glenmorangie is also attracting a lot of international attention, winning multiple awards for their outstanding taste and overall quality. In 2004, the distillery was sold to Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH), a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate, and has since adopted a brave strategy of giving their drams French-sounding names.
