Tomintoul Distillery is located inside the picturesque Glenlivet estate, within the whisky producing region of Speyside. The distillery is named after the nearby village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands of Scotland. Our Distillery Manager, Robert Fleming is a fourth generation distiller, born and bred on the Glenlivet estate. It took us a year of searching for the purest source of spring water until we found the Ballantruan spring. This determined the location of the distillery, tucked away in picturesque countryside. The natural and unspoilt environment that surrounds us, and our focus on making great whisky, can be tasted in every glass of “the gentle dram”. Tomintoul Distillery was built in 1964. Our distillery uses traditional techniques that stretch back hundreds of years, to make our award-winning single malt, “the gentle dram”. The natural environment, fresh air and pure water all add to our uniquely smooth and mellow spirit.
