Highland Malt
MANNOCHMORE (1971 - 1985) (1989 -  also see Glenlossie en Loch Dhu

Elgin, Morayshire. Licentiehouder: John Haig & Co, Ltd, Fife. Onderdeel van Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd. (S.M.D.) De malt divisie van United Distillers Ltd. Eigendom van Guinness.
Gebouwd in 1971, naast de Glenlossie distilleerderij, een zogenaamde tadem distilleerderij, de één is een kopie van de andere.
De naam komt van de nabij gelegen Mannoch Hills en het woord 'more' betekent groot, terwijl Mannoch Ketisch is voor monnik.
Mannochmore heeft zes ketels. Het proceswater is afkomstig van de Bardon Burn, het water voor koeling van de Gedloch Burn en de Burn of Foths.
Mannochmore werd in 1985 (tijdelijk) gesloten.
Mannochmore werd in 1989 weer opgestart.
De Mash tun is 12 ton.
De zes Wash backs hebben een inhoud van 60.000 liter elk.
De drie Wash stills zijn groot 16.100 liter, de drie Sprit stills zijn elk 14.700 liter en worden met stoom verhit.
Mannochmore kan 3220.000 liter spirit per jaar produceren.

October 2005

Diageo has announced that its 2005 Annual Rare Malts Selection will be the last.

The collection will consist of four cask strenght single malts from closed distilleries; Glen Mhor 28 years old, Millburn 35 years old, Glendullan 26 years old and Linkwood 30 years old.
Dr. Nicholas Morgan, global malts marketing director commented: 'As the Special Releases are now well established, it makes less sence to continue selecting and promoting a parallel series of Rare Malts with his own separate indentity'.
In future, all premium and rare whiskies will be made available in the annual Special Re-leases series.

Tea - Time whisky
Home of the ill-judged 'black whisky' (Loch Dhu), the distillery was built by Haigs in 1971 adjacent to their big plant at Glenlossie just south of Elgin.
This example could not be less like the black stuff. Mid gold in colour, the nose is sweet and citric-artificial ornage, like Eau de Seville - with a hint of chocolate, and buttery crepes. A crepe suzette made with oranges?
With water the orange and chocolate notes remain, joined by rich Tea biscuits and tablet. Very easy to drink, sweet and fresh, becoming slightly bitter in the finish, so that the gums tingle, and leaving a lingering aftertaste of chocolate. Good as an aperitif or tea time.


April 2013

Diageo has named Teaninich near Alness as the location for its plans to build a new 50 million pound new malt whisky distillery and will be adjacent the existing Teaninich distillery
but will have its own name and indentity and will have the capacity to produce 13 million
litres of spirit p[er annum from its 16 stills.

Diageo also invest 12 million pound in expanding the Teaninich distillery to almost doubless capacity.

The site will also feature a bio - energy plant.

The work will begin in 2014.

Diageo also will invest in Mortlach distillery  in building a new still house and an other invest-
ment will be at Glendullan distillery to process co products in an anaerobic digestion process, producing bio - gas which will be used to power the Glendullan distillery.

There are also expansion and upgrade developments for more then 40 million pound in
