History-

The origins of whisky production in Tomatin are unknown - the distillery which operates today was established in 1897.

Whisky production, albeit illegal, has been an important part of life in the area around Tomatin since the 1700s.

The name itself gives an insight into this secret past: “Tomatin” translates to “Hill of the Juniper Bush”.

Juniper wood gives off no smoke when burnt, a favourite of illicit distillers who must keep their practice secret.

A building known as “The Old Laird’s House” still remains on the site of the current distillery.

The cattle drovers from the north of Scotland taking cattle to the central markets would fill their flasks.

However, it was only in 1897 at the peak of the Victorian Whisk Boom that three men, John MacDougall, John MacLeish and Alexander Allan, along with a handful of investors, decided to open a formal distillery on the site and form The Tomatin Spey District Distillery Ltd.

Geography:

The chosen location may have been inspired by the history of illicit distillation on the site.

Despite being very isolated (Tomatin is over 1000 feet above sea level on the eastern edge of the Monadhliath Mountains).

It was also a very practical location; next to a newly opened rail line, not far from a market- it lies just over 18 miles south of Inverness - and on the Alt na Frith (meaning ‘free burn’) which provided a perfect source for soft, Highland water.
