The History of the Longmorn Distillery

Founded in 1893, the Longmorn Distillery Company was the brainchild of George Thomson, Charles Shirres and John Duff, who was once the manager of Aberdeen’s Bon Accord Distillery and the Glendronach Distillery. He was also Glenlossie Distillery’s founder and had been involved with other distilleries in the USA and in Cape Town which proved to be unsuccessful.

Production was launched at the Longmorn Distillery at the end of 1894 and just three years later, John Duff construction the Benriach Distillery next door. However, in 1898, both distillers found they were impacted by the collapse experienced by Pattison, Elder and Co, their wholesale buyers. The result was that John Duff was financially ruined and following his loss, the distillery went through several hands over the next century.

In 1970, the Longmorn Distillery joined Glen Grant and The Glenlivet forming The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd. In 1978 this company was purchased by Chivas Brothers who were then acquired in 2001 by the Pernod Ricard Group. Although Duff had been unsuccessful in his whisky operation, the Longmorn whisky turned out to be popular.

By the beginning of the 1900s, Longmorn was recognised as a prize malt and was used in several well-known blends including Dewars and VAT 69. Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of Nikka and a founding father of the Japanese whisky industry came to work at the distillery for a brief period in 1920, and it is said that Nikka’s stills at its 2 distilleries are based on those he saw at Longmorns

Longmorn launched their 15-year-old single malt as long ago as 1993, and another 16 year old single malt in 2007, however today most of Longmorn’s production is ring-fenced. It is especially popular with drinkers in Japan due to the Masataka Taketsuru connection.

Unlike many other distilleries, Longmorn is currently not open to the public although it is still in operation.
