Glen Mhor Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Speyside distillery 1898-1983 Infomation

Glen Mhor Malt Whisky Distillery History

The two whisky entrepreneurs John Mackinlays and John Birnie founded Glen Mhor Distillery in 1892. The first whisky was distilled in December 1894


John Birnie & James McKinley formalised their partnership by becoming a private company in 1906.


The name Glen Mhor means "Great Glen" in Gaelic. In 1954 Glen Mhor became the first distillery to use Saladin Boxes to malt its Barley. These Maltings ceased operating in 1980.


In 1972 the Distillers Company Limited, who operated the distillery until 1983 when it was mothballed due to low profitability, bought the distillery.


Glen Mhor was dismantled in 1986 then demolished in 1988 to make way for a supermarket.


The history of Glen Mhor is closely linked to that of the nearby Glen Albyn distillery, also closed in 1983.


The third distillery in Inverness, Millburn, was closed in the 1980's as well


Glen Mhor bottlings are becoming increasingly rare and are much sought-after by collectors and enthusiasts

Rare Malts Selection Tasting Notes


Colour: Pale Gold


This Highland Single Malt Whisky starts intense and mustard hot with warm, spicy clove flavours, soon lost in a short warming finish that "creeps in from the outside”.

Rare Malts Selection Tasting Notes


Colour: Green Gold


This Highland Malt Whisky is very complex, fresh tasting and zesty, with a tyipical lemon juice and white pepper flavour, sweetly drying to a soothing minty finish.
