Whyte & Mackay is the 5th largest producer of Scotch Whisky and is the owner of 4 of the oldest distilleries in Scotland:
The Dalmore distillery
Isle of Jura distillery
Old Fettercairn distillery
Created by Richard Patterson, one of the most respected people in the spirit industry, Dalmore is the icon of luxury and quality. The Dalmore distillery was founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, who was searching for the ideal place for his own distillery with different criteria than the competition. The vast majority of distilleries are found in Speyside, but Matheson was not worried about comfort – he only wanted to find the best natural resources. His search led him to Cromarty Firth, in the remote north, not far from the coast, where he found what he needed to create the most exceptional whiskies.
