Tormore, which is named after the Gaelic ‘Torra Mhòir’, meaning ‘big hill’, is one of the younger Scottish distilleries, the distillery construction began in 1958 and was completed in 1960. It was the first new distillery to be built in the country in the 20th century. Designed by Sir Albert Richardson for Long John International, it is a listed building, and one of the most architecturally striking distilleries. The building is made of granite, has copper rotors and a clock which plays 4 different Scottish songs each quarter of an hour. In 1972, the distillery was expanded from four to eight stills. These were converted to be heated by wood chips in 1984, a by-product of the area’s forestry. Tormore is owned by Pernod-Ricard.
