Description

Tomatin was the first Scottish Distillery to be wholly owned by a Japenese company. As late as 1956 there were only 2 stills in operation, but by 1973 there were 11 in total - 6 wash and 5 spirit stills. Then in a major expansion

programme the capacity was boosted to 23 stills, making Tomatin the biggest malt distillery in Scotland at that time, with an annual production of 5 million gallons. During the boom years for Scotch Whisky from 1973 to 1984 - Tomatin

produced its malt whisky primarily to be used in blends. But when demand fell in the early 1980s, 11 stills were closed down, and eventually removed in 2000. Today, with 12 stills operating, Tomatin remains 1 of the largest malt distilleries in Scotland.
