Longmorn

Build on the site of an old chapel, the Longmorndistillery has been founded by John Duff and two associates, Charles Shirres and George Thomson in 1894, together with its neighbour Benriach. John Duff founded the Glenlossie 19 years earlier. Despite his good position within the whisky world in those days, John Duff was crippled by debts because of the great recession in the whisky industry at the end of the 19th century. He was forced to sell everything to pay his creditors. Among the candidates for buying the distillery, John Grant through his company Hill Thomson & Co who marketed amongst others the "Something Special" blend. In the early 1970's, Longmorn merged with the distillery The Glenlivet to create "The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd". The distillery doubled its production capacity in 1972 and again in 1974. The number of stills went from 4 to 8. Seagram purchased the distillery in 1977. Longmorn is one of the few distilleries who never stopped production. Longmorn is part of the collection "Heritage Collection". The distilleries belonging to "The Chivas and Glenlivet Group", part of Seagram have been bought by the French group Pernod-Ricard on 19 december 2001. Parts of the production are used in the blends.
