Glen Moray Distillery



Like Glenmorangie, Glen Moray started out its existence as a brewery. It became a distillery in 1897. The distillery lies by the river Lossie close to the medieval city of Elgin. Glen Moray is gaelic for ‘glen of the seaboard settlement’. Unfortunately for Glen Moray’s fouder, the whisky boom was over soon after the distillery was founded and the company was bankrupted. In 1920 the distillery was bought by Macdonald and Muir Ltd, who renovated and expanded the distillery with two additional stills. The warehouse “No 1” lies close to the Gallows Crook Hill where criminals were hanged in the 15th century. Glen Moray was the first Speyside distillery to use white wine barrels to ‘finish’ maturation.
