Tomintoul Scotch whisky distillery was established in 1964 to meet the demand of malt whisky needed for blending.
Tomintoul village is the second highest in Scotland. The distillery lies 5 miles to the north and draws its water from the Ballantruan Spring.
Tomintoul the gentle dram, as worded on the bottle is a good discription
of the distillery style.
Generally the whisky is unpeated although they do peated versions,
"with a peaty tang" and "Old Ballantruan" which is a more heavily peated
malt bottled at 50%.
