Proof66 Notes

"Located on the eastern edge of the Monadh Liath Mountains, Tomatin has a feeling of remoteness about it. Illicit stills are part of the history of whisky distilling in Scotland; as a distilling site, illicit or otherwise, Tomatin reaches back to the 15th Century when drovers, bringing their cattle over high mountain passes to the market at Tomatin, filled their flasks from a still at the Old Laird's House, beside the current distillery building--perhaps the fore-runner to the current visitor centre! A formal distillery was commissioned on the site in 1897, and at 315 meters above sea level it is one of the highest in the country. "In 1985 the Distillery was acquired by Japanese shareholders, who established The Tomatin Distillery Co Ltd and secured the future of whisky distilling in the Monadhliath hills. Tomatin now operates 12 stills, and in 2007 produced 2.5 million litres." Tomatin produces its own brand of scotch as well as the Antiquary and Talisman brands. Today, the distillery is actually owned by a Japanese business group.

The Antiquary 12 year scotch is a blend of 12yr (or older) whiskies from the Tomatin distillery. It is said to have a "depth of flavor and long aftertaste."
