Tomatin 12 Year Old John McDonald Commemorative 70cl / 43%
A bottle of Tomatin 12 Year Old Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, bottled on the occasion of John McDonald's retiral as Managing Director of the distillery.
This bottle comes from the personal collection of Andrew Dewar-Durie of Durie CBE, Managing Director and then Chairman of Allied Distillers in the 1990s.
Tomatin distillery was built in 1897 close to the Highland and Speyside border. Following a period of expansion in the 1950s and 1960s, it became one of the largest distilleries in the Highlands. After a downturn, the distillery went into liquidation before becoming the first Scotch whisky distillery to come under Japanese ownership when it was purchased by Takara Shuzo and Okara companies in 1986. Today, the distillery is known for supplying blends such as The Antiquary as well as its core range of single malts which benefit from Tomatin's use of first-fill sherry and bourbon wood for maturation.
