About this Chapter 7 x TopWhiskies collaboration
The young Mannochmore distillery has a brief but successful history. Mannochmore was a major contributor to the Haig's blends. John Haig & Company Limited managed it until 1985 when they mothballed it.
In 1989 the distillery was re-opened again. The first official single malt bottling was a 12 year old under the Flora & Fauna range. Under Diageo’s ownership, the distillery has continued to be a bulk provider of malt whisky for blends. That isn't surprising, they Mannochmore can produce 3.2 million litres a year! This is a great opportunity to try Mannochmore as a single malt.
