The Tamnavulin-Glenlivet Distillery Co. Ltd initially built this distillery in order to cater to growing demand during the 1960s. The facility closed down in the 1990s for some time, before reopening in 2001 under Kyndal International. The distillery produces single malt Scotch whisky and is equipped with high-tech modern technology that produces 4m litres of alcohol every single year. A major refurbishment in July 2007 made this distillery even more modern and tech-savvy, with new automation and process controls installed to make production more efficient.
The Tamnavulin story began in 1966 with the opening of the distillery in Tomnavoulin, a rural village in Scotland. The name Tamnavulin itself derives from the Gaelic for ‘Mill on the hill’, a nod to the historic former carding mill on the distillery’s site.
Despite a closure and reopening in 1995 and 2007 respectively, the distillery has continued to craft their distinctive single malt whisky to this day, producing a Scotch whisky that truly embodies the Speyside character.
Of course, Speyside is one of the most celebrated whisky-producing locations not just in Scotland, but the entire world. Tamnavulin is born in the very heart of Speyside, and their whisky beats with the rich, smooth and mellow flavour profiles that have won the region’s whisky so many admirers.
