The majority of our clients are based in Asia where any form of Single Malt Scotch Whisky is now positioned as one of the most sought-after assets. It is the demand from Asia that has driven record prices for bottles, culminating in the sale of a 1926 bottle of Macallan for £1,500,000 in 2019.

The History of Glen Moray Distillery
While today the Glen Moray distillery is in the middle of a housing estate, originally it sat outside the boundaries of Elgin. It began its life as a brewery which took its power and water from the River Lossie which flowed at high speed alongside the building. On the downside, the closeness of this water source led to several floods over the years in the distillery buildings.
In 1897, the function of the building changed, and the Glen Moray distillery was converted from the old buildings due to the boom in the whisky industry which was occurring at this time. Unfortunately, although it had seemed that there would be a never-ending demand for whisky, this turned out not to be the case, and like many other whisky brands, Glen Moray fell prey to the early 20th century slump, closing its doors in 1910. In 1923 it was bought by Glenmorangie’s owner, Macdonald and Muir.
In 1058 a large Saladin malting was installed, doubling the still number from two to four. These maltings ran until the late 1970s. Towards the end of the period of Glenmorangie ownership, Glen Moray became known as the budget malt of the firm, and it was frequently sold at the same low price as a standard blend. This meant that even when demand grew and sales increased there was very little profit produced, and the image of the distillery became badly tarnished.
2008 saw the distillery being sold to La Martiniquaise, a French distillery company, primarily for fillings for the brand’s Glen Turner and Label Five brands. Since that time, capacity has increased by 40% and another pair of stills and new washbacks have been installed.
It is thought that the high water table and river’s proximity produces a more humid and warm microclimate that helps the maturation process. Since La Martiniquaise took over the distillery, a greater percentage of first fill American oak casks are used and this adds a more buttery note to the mix. Interestingly, Glen Moray was a pioneer of whisky finishing in wine casks, and in recent years some new releases have emerged as well as peated malts.
The Glen Moray visitors centre is open all through the year and offers tastings and tours to interested visitors. The brand has also won a number of awards through the years in competitions like the ISC, WWA and IWSC among others.
