Tomatin Scotch whisky distillery was established in 1897 and is located about 13 miles south-east of Inverness at an elevation of 1028 feet, which makes it one of the highest distilleries in Scotland. The distillery draws its water from Allt-na-Frithe burn. Tomatin is Gaelic for "the hill of the juniper bushes".
Due to the decline in the whisky market during the early 1980’s The Company went into receivership; however in 1986 the distillery was bought by the Japanese firms of Takara Schuzo and Okura, thus becoming the first Scotch whisky distillery to be wholly owned by a Japanese company.
