Distilled 1984 bottled 2004 - a very old bottle from the Connoisseurs Choice range.
The site also hosts a dark grains plant, processing draff and pot ale. Equally sizeable, the facility processes 1000 tonnes of dark grains for animal feed every week. The whisky distillery was built in 1971 by Scottish Malt Distillers, later to become a part of Diageo. It was managed by John Haig and Co. It was only comparatively recently - in 1992 - that single malt Scotch whisky was released from Mannochmore; for many years it had been a blending component and was a constituent of Haig blends.
A more recent release, Loch Dhu, has attained popularity in Denmark, with the moniker ‘The Black Whisky’. Its colour is achieved by double charring the bourbon casks prior to maturation. The Black Whisky was latterly replaced by the similarly sinister-looking Cu Dhub, named for the Gaelic for Black Dog.
