All about making whisky
Captivating, majestic scents, which gain in concentration and complexity, voluptuous flavours full of energy and exoticism, and then a velvety, oily finish that seems to prolong our pleasure indefinitely. We are absolutely delighted to be able to include Mortlach among the single malts in La Maison du Whisky’s much-prized Artist range.
Profile: full-bodied, the initial nose reveals salt layered over citrus fruit, camomile and candied fruit (plum). It then becomes chocolatey and spicy. The palate is like a wonderfully rich brioche. Developing minerality, it draws clear rum parallels. Velvety tannins bring the finish a wonderfully smooth texture.

Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
Founded in 1823, Mortlach is allegedly built on the site of a former illicit distillery. It was one of the rare distilleries allowed to produce alcohol during the second world war, right up until 1944. Using partial triple distillation and a traditional “worm tube” condensation system – also used by Talisker and Edradour – Mortlach produces a very delicate distillate. As is the case with many of the distilleries owned by the Diageo group, very few official bottlings of the malt exist outside of the Flora & Fauna and Rare Malts ranges released in the 1990s.
Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
