Longmorn 16 year old description
Longmorn was founded in 1893 by John Duff, one of the great personalities of the Victorian whisky industry, attracted by the booming demand for quality Scotch Whisky. The distillery's name derives from the church of St Marnoch near the Elgin to Rothes road, in turn named for a 7th century missionary who brought Christianity to the Picts of Moray. Although, the Gaelic 'St Mo-ernin-og' evolved to 'Longmorn' over the centuries, the natural ingredients used in the whisky remain as pure as in St Marnoch's day: water from the local springs, barley from Moray and peat from nearby sources - all contributing to the signature Speyside character for which Longmorn is so highly prized. Longmorn 16yo is in great demand not only as a single malt but as the 'top dressing' in many of Scotland's finest blended whiskies.
Presumably to meet demand in the late 19th century, John Duff built a second distillery alongside Longmorn - Longmorn Number 2. This second distillery is now known as BenRiach.
