The Glenmorangie Company
The Glenmorangie Company was founded in 1843 by Roderick Macdonald and Alexander Muir as a wine and spirits company. Today, the company is one of the most famous and well respected Scotch whisky distillers and marketers of premium Scotch whisky brands worldwide.
The Company is an intriguing mixture of the past and the future; producing its range of malt whiskies using traditional methods.
Headquartered in Edinburgh, the company produces three main malt brands – Glenmorangie Single Highland malt whisky, Glen Moray Speyside malt whisky and Ardbeg single Islay malt – in addition to a range of other whiskies. All of the whiskies are distinctive and have regional characteristics. There are distilleries in each of the three main regions, with Glenmorangie produced at Tain, Ardbeg on the island of Islay and Glen Moray in Elgin.
Glenmorangie is a real success story in the world of malt whisky. In the 1980′s, Glenmorangie embarked on an international campaign, stressing the premium quality and handcrafted character of the brand and helping to pioneer the world’s taste for single malt.
Despite distributing to over 120 markets world-wide, the distillery still remains one of the smallest in the Highlands and employs just sixteen craftsmen – “The Sixteen Men of Tain” – who have become synonymous with the Glenmorangie brand all over the world.
In 2004, Glenmorangie plc acquired The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, allowing improved access to the whisky enthusiast and the potential to accelerate the development of this business. The acquisition is compatible with Glenmorangie’s vision of being a leading player in the Scotch malt whisky sector.
