Mortlach prides itself on being Dufftown’s first legal distillery. It was founded in 1823 by James Findlater. Mortlach’s malts have the classic Speyside flavor, although the set-up is far from traditional. The distillery has three wash stills and three spirit stills, which can produce nearly 3 million liters a year.
