Tomintoul Distillery is located inside the picturesque Glenlivet estate, within the whisky producing region of Speyside. The distillery is named after the nearby village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands of Scotland. Their Distillery Manager, Robert Fleming is a fourth generation distiller, born and bred on the Glenlivet estate. It took them a year of searching for the purest source of spring water until they found the Ballantruan spring. This determined the location of the distillery, tucked away in picturesque countryside.
