We are delighted announce that our flagship expression, the Tomintoul 16 Year Old, won a “Category Winner” award in the prestigious World Whiskies Awards 2021. This award is given to the best Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, in the 13-20 years age range. These awards are globally recognised and give homage to the highest quality of whiskies around the world. This result is a testament to the team and the hard work that goes into making our smooth, beautifully balanced Speyside single malts.
On the 30th of April 2020, Tomintoul Distillery’s Master Distiller, Robert Fleming, celebrated 30 years as manager of the distillery. Over the years Robert’s experience, skill and boundless passion for whisky has shaped Tomintoul Single Malt, which is famously known around the world as “the gentle dram”.
Master Distiller Robert Fleming really does have whisky running through his veins. His family has been making whisky in the Speyside region for four generations.
“I remember as a youth cycling up A’anside with friends around the time the Tomintoul Distillery first started production in 1965. Little did I know that one day I would be fortunate in being only the third person in charge of the distillery and having the privilege of spending 30 years guiding whisky production at this unique Speyside distillery.” Robert Fleming, Master Distiller
In honour of Robert’s 30 years at the distillery, Tomintoul Distillery is releasing two very special bottlings of 30 years old Tomintoul Single Malt, personally selected by Robert himself. The First Edition of the limited release “Robert Fleming 30th Anniversary” is an incredibly complex yet beautifully balanced single malt. The whisky has spent its first 20 years in a bourbon cask before spending its last 10 years in an Oloroso sherry butt.
“It gives me great pride to put my name to this exceptional single malt, which was matured in a cask that I personally selected in Jerez, Spain. Rare and complex, this is a stunning example of the unique style of whisky that we make at Tomintoul Distillery”, Robert Fleming, Master Distiller.
We are delighted to announce the release of the brand new addition to our range, The Tomintoul Cigar Malt.
The rich and sweet Oloroso Sherry notes, creamy malt profile and gentle peat smoke make this single malt the perfect accompaniment to savour alongside your favourite cigar or just appreciate and enjoy by itself.
Master Distiller, Robert Fleming said: "I am incredibly proud to release this new expression of Tomintoul, as I personally selected the range of Tomintoul single malts that make up this extremely complex and unique whisky. The Tomintoul Cigar Malt has the perfect balance of sweetness and spice, with a rich smoky background."
We are thrilled to announce that Tomintoul Whisky has brought home gold medals from the International Spirits Challenge 2020.
Our winning single malts were Tomintoul 15 Year Old Portwood, Tomintoul 16 Year Old - our flagship dram and also our newest addition, Tomintoul Seiridh.

Tomintoul Distillery, are delighted to be the successful buyers of the world’s largest bottle of single malt scotch whisky.
The record breaking bottle of Tomintoul 14 Year Old was filled by the distillery team back in 2009 and at 1.5m tall it holds an impressive 105.3 litres of spirit, which is equivalent to 150 standard bottles of whisky.
The bottle was originally commissioned by two local businesses, in a bid to bring more tourism into the Tomintoul area, and the whisky was donated by the distillery, to support the local community. It was filled at Tomintoul Distillery, under the supervision of the Guinness World Records, and was then moved to the village of Tomintoul to be on display. It spent a brief period in Edinburgh at The Scotch Whisky Experience, before returning to the village in 2014, where it has been an important feature in the area ever since.
Tomintoul Distillery Director, Robert Fleming, said “We are absolutely delighted to have this unique bottle of 14 Year Old back at the distillery, where our team filled it 10 years ago. As a world record holder it’s a unique part of whisky history and an important chapter for Tomintoul Distillery.”
In the next few weeks the bottle will be transported back to it’s original birthplace to take pride of place at the distillery, where it will soon be on show for visitors to see.
We are back at the fabulous BBC Good Food Show Winter, this weekend!
The team are excited to showcase our superb range plus some special Single Cask bottlings. We also have our very new Tomintoul 18 Year Old Gift Pack - the best Christmas present for any whisky lover!
