  • Invergordon - Highland Grain Whisky

    The Invergordon Distillery is a significant whisky distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Located in the port town of Invergordon, the distillery was founded in 1960 and is known for producing grain whisky. Unlike traditional malt whiskies, grain whisky is made in continuous stills, known as Coffey stills. The distillery is owned by Whyte & Mackay, a renowned Scottish whisky producer, and plays a central role in their production portfolio.

    Invergordon is one of the few grain whisky distilleries in Scotland and contributes significantly to the market supply of high-quality grain whiskies, which are often used in blended whiskies. The facility has three Coffey stills, which enable efficient and continuous distillation, allowing for the production of large quantities of whisky. The distillery's capacity is about 40 million liters of alcohol per year, making it one of the largest of its kind in Scotland.

    The grain whisky produced by Invergordon is used in a variety of blended whiskies, including well-known brands like Whyte & Mackay. Additionally, there are also some standalone bottlings of Invergordon grain whisky available, which are appreciated by whisky enthusiasts and collectors. These bottlings are characterized by a smooth and light flavor profile, often featuring notes of vanilla, caramel, and light fruits.

    The geographical location of the distillery in the Highlands offers ideal conditions for whisky production. The cool climate and pure air contribute to the slow maturation of the whisky, allowing complex aromas to develop. The proximity to the port of Invergordon also facilitates export and logistics, helping the distillery to distribute its products worldwide.

    Since its founding, Invergordon has established itself as a reliable and efficient distillery. Through continuous investments in technology and production facilities, the distillery ensures that it meets the high standards of the whisky industry. Invergordon's contribution to the world of whisky, particularly in the area of grain whiskies, is of great importance and underscores the diversity and quality of Scottish whisky production.
