Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen

Distillers & Spirit Producers

Invergordon Distillery


Invergordon Distillery (owned by Diageo), Cottage Brae, Invergordon, Ross-shire, Scotland, UK.


Invergordon is in the northeast of the Scotland (25 miles North of Inverness, by road) and was once a thriving commercial and naval port as it has one of the best deepwater harbors in Europe. However, the port fell into decline when the Navy left in the 1950’s. In 1959 Invergordon Distillers Ltd commissioned the building of a distillery at Invergordon. It started operating in 1961 and became, and still is, the furthest north whiskey grain distillery in the Highlands. They have four coffey stills, which includes a large one added in 1978 and used to produce neutral grain spirit.

Since the 1980’s the Distillery has seen a change in ownership every decade: a management buyout in 1988; purchase by Whyte & Mackay in 1993; purchase of Whyte & Mackay by United Spirits in 2007; and purchase of United Spirits (including Whyte & Mackay) in 2012 by Diageo. It is fair to say Whyte & Mackay have been the main constant, as ongoing caretakers for the Distillery since 1993 - we shall have to wait and see what changes (if any) occur under Diageo.
