Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Rarely seen as a single malt, Teaninich distillery located in Alness, in the Scottish Highlands and has a long history of producing high-quality whisky, which has been used in blends by some of the biggest names in the industry.
Teaninich is owned by Diageo as a vital component of their best-selling blends, and is released under their Flora and Fauna range. They uniquely installed a hammer mill and mash filter in 2000, removing the need for a mash tun. This results in an ultra-clear wort, imparting fragrant flavours of Japanese green tea and freshly cut grass.

Used as a part of Johnnie Walker Red Label.
Teaninich has an annual capacity of 10.2 million litres.
