Sustainability and heritage are two of our main focuses. In 2014, we initiated a project with Heriot-Watt University and the Marine Conservation Society to protect and enhance our Highland home at Glenmorangie. Our pride in our heritage and our communities is shared in our partnership with National Museums Scotland.
Pioneered by Glenmorangie in partnership with Heriot-Watt University and the Marine Conservation Society, The Dornoch Environmental Enhancement Project (DEEP) is a groundbreaking initiative aiming to restore Native European oysters to the Dornoch Firth.
Heriot-Watt is a leading technological and business university, renowned for innovation in business, engineering, design and the physical, social and life sciences. It is ranked in the top 10 for research impact in the UK.
Within the University’s Centre for Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology, Dr Bill Sanderson’s work concentrates on the marine biodiversity research needed to support sensitive management and sustainable development. His team is responsible for the research and fieldwork for DEEP.

Marine Conservation Society
The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) is the UK’s leading charity for the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife. MCS champions a vision of sustainable fisheries, abundant marine life and clean seas and beaches for the enjoyment of all.
MCS supports our DEEP project through community and staff engagement, education, communications support and advocacy.
Inspired by our passion for our heritage and Scotland’s history, we began The Glenmorangie Research Project on Early Medieval Scotland in 2008. Since then, we’ve uncovered exciting new insights on this important period of Scotland’s past.
The project is a pioneering partnership between The Glenmorangie Company and National Museums Scotland that was inspired by the Hilton of Cadboll stone, which has had close ties to our brand since its discovery. This stunning piece of early medieval sculpture was found close to our distillery in Tain, Easter Ross, and is now on display at The National Museum of Scotland in the Early People gallery. Mesmerised by the incredible find, we even took inspiration from the ancient carvings on the stone to create the Glenmorangie Signet logo.
With our interest in Scotland’s early history, we’re proud to support National Museums Scotland’s ground-breaking research. Beautiful, elaborate and sophisticated objects, sculptured stones and manuscripts were produced in Scotland during this time. Through this project, we can uncover their stories and share them with the people of Scotland.
