Whiskey Antiquary made on Distillery Tomatin, which was built in 1897 in the mountains Monadhliath, just south of Inverness, the capital of Highlands of Scotland. Tomatin is one of the highest distilleries in Scotland, because it is located at an altitude of 315 meters above sea level. Soft and clean water of the river Alt-na-Frith, which flows through the mountains Monadhliath, helping to create a whiskey with a delicate flavor, rich and soft style.
Tomatin among the ten best distilleries in Scotland. Today, the plant produces 2 million liters of alcohol a year, although production capacities allow to produce 12 million liters, as it was in the 70s of XX century. Historically, Tomatin was producing malt for companies that are engaged in the manufacture of whiskey blends, but now the company is focused on creating high-quality single malt whiskey. The product line consists of 12, 18, 25, 30 and 40-year-old whiskey and some numbered vintages. Tomatin is also one of the few plants in Scotland, which has retained its cooperage.
