Mortlach’s main claim to fame is that it was the first of seven distilleries to be built in and around Dufftown. The distillery operates a unique distillation process which distills the spirit 2.5 times. This, combined with the worm tubs used to condense the spirit, gives the whisky the complexity for which it is renowned.
