The unique and distinguised taste of Tamnavulin

Over 50 years ago, a small group of skilled, time-served craftsmen and women at Tamnavulin Distillery began creating this signature Speyside malt. Working in the rural village of Tomnavoulin, Scotland, they used the finest ingredients they could source, and then combined them with age-old distilling expertise and sophisticated techniques. The outcome was a sweet, mellow and smooth single malt.  The signature Speyside malt has a rich, full-bodied flavour profile that exudes warmth and comfort, making it perfect for those cozy fireside moments. Matured in American oak barrels and finished in sherry casks, Tamnavulin boasts a complex palate of sweet, fruity, and spicy notes, including rich toffee, dried fruits, and a hint of nutmeg, evoking the essence of winter desserts and holiday spices.
