Tomintoul is a relatively modern distillery located in the south of the Speyside region, the name comes from Scotland's highest village just a few miles away. It was built in 1965 by whisky brokers Hay & MacLeod and W & S Strong, and merged with Whyte & Mackay in the early 1970s. Capacity was expanded and the distillery changed hands several times before it came under the ownership of Angus Dundee Distillers in 2000, and the first 10 Year Old single malt was released in 2002. A peated malt named Old Ballantruan was launched in 2005, named after Tomintoul's water source, the Ballantruan Spring.
