Mannochmore :Glenlossie was built in 1876 by John Duff in the valley of River Lossie, near Elgin. 20 years later it was expanded and again in 1962, the last expansion included adding two more stills, the total now being six stills.
A purifier has been installed between the lyne arm and the condenser on each of the three spirit stills.
Electricity only replaced steam as late as 1960 as the means of power generation at the distillery. A fire at the distillery in 1929 caused some damage. One of the appliances that fought the blaze was the distillery's own engine. Dating from the 1860s and originally horse drawn, it can still be seen at the distillery.
The site now houses two distilleries, the other being the much newer Mannochmore, built in 1971.
From the Whisky pilot by Uniqum Systems :
The Mannochmore Distillery was built in 1971 on the same 25 acre : \L\10 hectare) site as the older Glenlossie : \L\1876). Mannochmore does not utilise a purifier between the lyne arm and condenser as does Glenlossie.
Mothballed in 1985, but re-opened in 1989. It takes its water from the the Bardon Burn high up on Mannochmore hills.
It is situated next to Glenlossie at Thomshill on an unclassified road to the west of the A941, two miles south of Elgin.
Not often available as a single, Mannochmore is important to a number of blends, including Haig.
