Mannochmore distillery was built in 1971 by Scottish Malt Distillers, later to become a part of Diageo.
The Mannochmore distillery lies just south of Elgin in Morayshire, at the heart of Speyside.
The distillery shares not only a site, but also the water-source the Bardon Burn - with the Glenlossie distillery.
there are three pairs of stills with a combined total capacity of 3.22 million litres annually.
There are onsite warehouses which boast space for 200,000 casks, Diageo use the space to store maturing spirit from other distilleries as well as Mannochmore.
The site also hosts a dark grains plant, processing draft and pot ale, equally sizeable, the facility processes 1000 tonnes of dark grains for animal feed every week.
As recently as 1992 a single malt Scotch whisky was released from the distillery, for many years it had been a blending component and was a constituent of Haig blends.
A more recent release, Loch Dhu, has attained popularity in Denmark, with the moniker ‘The Black Whisky’, Its colour is achieved by double charring the bourbon casks prior to maturation.
The Black Whisky was latterly replaced by the similarly sinister-looking Cu Dhub, named for the Gaelic for Black Dog.
