Glenmorangie single malt whisky has been produced in the Scottish Highlands since 1843, when farmer William Matheson and his wife Anne followed their dreams and founded the Glenmorangie Distillery. Considered a pioneer in its field, the Scottish Distillery has become famous for combining tradition and innovation to create the most delicious whiskies. To achieve this, Glenmorangie single malt whisky is created by the people of Tain with a unique distillation process that uses the tallest stills in Scotland. Expertly matured in only the finest oak casks, the resulting single malt is testament to the savoir-faire that has been passed down from generation to generation by a team of expert craftsmen and women.

The same height as a giraffe, Glenmorangie’s stills allow more space for taste and aroma, making the spirit delicate and fruity. But the giraffe faces serious threats in the wild, from poaching to habitat loss. To play its part in helping the giraffe, in 2020 Glenmorangie forged a conservation partnership with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland.

“ Though a bio-chemist by training, I believe it takes both art and science to craft the finest whiskies and I regularly travel the world seeking inspiration for future expressions of Glenmorangie. I am passionate about all areas of whisky making, but especially the importance of wood management, sourcing casks from intriguing vineyards around the world to complement the extra maturation of Glenmorangie which bring new and unique characteristics all of their own.”


The Glenmorangie Distillery’s expertise has developed over the last 175 years, passed down by each generation with unwavering commitment to excellence and the development of innovative techniques in whisky making and maturation. With perfection always in mind, the House uses mineral-rich Tarlogie Spring water and carefully chosen Scottish barley in its production.  Glenmorangie is distilled in Scotland’s tallest stills, with copper necks that are 5.14 metres high, so that only the lightest and purest vapors are captured for maturation, producing a smooth, elegant, delicious single malt whisky.
