About Glenmorangie House

Overlooking the unspoilt shores of the Moray Firth and nestled amongst the ruins of an old castle this 17th century house is both luxurious and intimate. With everything you would expect from a 5star hotel, but with the warmth and personality of a country house party, this really is a special place to come and experience the rugged beauty of the highlands.

Take a walk along the beach, play a round of golf, visit our distillery and then head back to the house to enjoy award winning food sourced from our own kitchen garden, a surrounding farm or the sea; a quick 200 yard dash down a tree lined path.Contact Information

Tasting Masterclass

Dr William (Bill) Lumsden

In his role as Head of Distilling & Whisky Creation, Dr Lumsden oversees the creation of the entire Glenmorangie range. He is regarded as a pioneer in the malt whisky industry, touring the world in search of the best oak casks in which our whiskies will be given unique characteristics. He is also the only person to have been honoured three times with The Malt Advocate 'Industry Leader of the Year' Award.

The Serves

Dr Bill Lumsden would recommend enjoying Glenmorangie in any of the following ways.


To try our whisky neat is to experience it in its purest form, where the complexity of the flavours and aromas is at its fullest intensity.

With Water

A little water will soften the alcohol, causing a change in the texture and bouquet of the whisky, and revealing further layers of aromas and complexity.

Over Ice

Adding two or three large rocks of ice to your whisky will close down the top notes that were released with water accentuating instead the base flavours from the oak barrel.

The Glass

Whisky glass

The glass in which you serve our whisky will have an effect on the flavour. However we believe that Glenmorangie should be enjoyed in whichever way you think best, and that includes your favourite glass.

But, if you were to ask Dr Bill Lumsden for his personal opinion, he would recommend a simple, yet good quality tumbler to really allow the aromas to be released before and after adding water.

Understanding The Label


Our brand name Glenmorangie comes from the Scots Gaelic Gleann mor na sithe which means 'valley of tranquillity', a perfect description of the peaceful setting near Tain.


This means that this particular whisky has been made in the highlands, a rugged and mountainous region of Northern Scotland.

Single Malt

To be referred to as single malt, a whisky must be produced by one distillery alone. Many whiskies are blends of a number of different makers but all our whiskies are distilled and matured solely in Tain.

Scotch Whisky

To be called Scotch a whisky must be matured in oak casks for at least three years.

The Original

We refer to this expression of Glenmorangie as 'the Original' because it is the perfect embodiment of our house style: light and elegant, but with incredible layers of complexity of flavour.


The Signet emblem is our brand icon, chosen as it represents an integral part of our heritage. Inspired by intricate designs carved into the Cadboll Stone, an ancient standing stone that we believe is, with its highly skilled carvings, the perfect symbol of our brand.


Ross-shire is a county in the North East of Scotland where our distillery is situated. This unique location on the Dornoch Firth gives mild, maritime conditions ideal for maturing Glenmorangie.


In 1843, William Matheson set up the Glenmorangie Distillery with two towering stills; stills that are still in use today and which helped create the unique style of Glenmorangie.

Perfected by the Sixteen Men Of Tain

The select group of craftsmen who are entrusted with the secrets of our distillery. Men whose dedication, skill and attention to detail is passed down from generation to generation.

Ten Years Old

This refers to the amount of time this whisky has been maturing in oak casks. Any longer and Glenmorangie Original, only ever matured in first or second fill casks, would not retain its perfect balance between sweetness and complexity.

Distillery Tour

The Glenmorangie Distillery tour gives you unparalleled access to the distillery and warehouses. With the help of an expert guide you will experience all stages of the whisky making process from mashing and fermenting to distilling and maturing - all culminating in a dram or two of your choice!
