Crafted with expertise,
Perfected by Speyside.

Our single malt whisky has been distilled on the banks of the River Lossie since 1897, just outside Elgin, one of Scotland’s oldest towns.

In its long history, the award winning Glen Moray has been distilled in time honoured fashion, by hand. Never rushed or forced, always in balance, steady and with care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This constancy and dedication is truly characterised by Glen Moray’s people.

In its lifetime, the distillery has known only 5 distillery managers. Know-how, myths and trade secrets passed though the generations to ensure every drop has the same light character as the last.

The Barley Sheaf represents the core ingredient in our single malt whisky and also represents the Laich O’ Moray (Machair Mhoireibh in Scottish Gaelic); a rich and fertile plain along the Moray Coast. It is sometimes referred to as the Granary of Scotland.

It’s all in our

Single Malt Whisky

Glen Moray is a quality malt whisky from the heart of Speyside.

We use ex bourbon barrels sourced from North America to mature Glen Moray and these produce a whisky with rich and spicy characteristics. These casks deliver a superior product that has a smooth and well-rounded taste.

Being in the Laich O’Moray the distillery benefits from the regions milder climate as it is afforded protection from the Cairngorm and Monadhliath Mountains. The distillery's geographic location and also sitting in a hollow below the water table, means that the warehousing has the perfect conditions to allow for the Angels to take more of a share of our whisky than they will of others.

Glen Moray is available in a range of ages and vintages that will appeal to new malt drinkers as well as connoisseurs looking for something a bit more special.
