Collection Teaninich - Highlands Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Teaninich is a whiskey distillery in Alness. It was founded and built by Hugh Munro on his Teaninich Castle estate in 1817. Despite initial difficulties in sourcing barley whiskey due to high demand from illegal distilleries, by 1830 Teaninich was producing 30 times more whiskey than when it was founded.

In 2000 a mash filter hammer mill was installed at Teaninich - the only one in operation at a Scottish malt distillery. Using this technology, which eliminates the need for a mash tun, an ultra-clear wort was created that gives a clue to the character of the Teaninich distillery: a fragrant exotic grassy note reminiscent of Japanese green tea and coumarin-rich bison grass.

In April 2013, owner Diageo announced another renovation of the distillery. The new distillery will have a different name than Teaninich and will produce its own whisky.

The distillery primarily produces blended malts and is used for Johnnie Walker Red Label.
