Teaninich was founded and built in 1817 by Hugh Munro on his estate of Teaninich Castle, Alness. Despite an initial difficulty of procuring barley whisky owing to a high demand from illegal distilleries, by 1830 Teaninich produced 30 times more spirit than it did at its founding. The distillery suspended production between 1939 and 1946 due to barley shortages during World War II.
Today Teaninich plays an important role for its owner, Diageo, in providing a signnificant volume of single malt whisky for use in its blending operations – Teaninich is one of its largest players.
A relatively long fermentation time is utilised at Teaninich, as well as large ball-type stills with slightly downwardly sloping lynne arms. The result? A particularly wonderful grassy and somewhat oily spirit that is fantastic for blending, and more magical yet as a single malt.
