Mortlach distillery is a distiller of Scotch whisky in Dufftown, Moray, Scotland. Founded in 1823-1824, the distillery is currently owned by Diageo.[1] The whisky is a key component in several Johnnie Walker bottlings.[2]


The Mortlach distillery was founded in 1823 by James Findlater in Dufftown, Banffshire. The Mortlach distillery was the first distillery in Dufftown, pre-dating the next one (Glenfiddich) by over four decades.

On the Third of April 2013, Diageo announced a project to "substantially increase the capacity of the Mortlach distillery at Dufftown".[3]
