Tomatin Distillery CompanyInverness, Highlands of Scotland Category Food and Drink
The smooth, curved hills sheltering the Tomatin Ditillery reflect the softer side of nature in this quiet spot of the highlands. Here, bubbling pure water, tender barley and gentle patience all go into creating an incredibly soft Highland whisky. Whisky production has been central to the way of life in this area most probably since the 15th century and certainly since 1897 when the first official distillery on the site was established – the settlement of Tomatin was created only as a result of the riches created by the distillery. Take one of the tours through the distillery and learn the history and process of whisky.
