Founded in 1823, the first three decades of Mortlach's life were uncertain, with numerous owners coming and going. Fortunately, in 1853, a railway surveyor by the name of George Cowie took over. Cowie had spent his career helping to build Britain's infrastructure, and soon brought the same level of skill and determination to the craft of distillation - establishing Mortlach's superiority over 40 years. By 1896, George's son Alexander joined the business, introduced the 2.81 distillation process in which the liquid is distilled 2.81 times, and set events in motion that would give us the rich, muscular whisky we know today.
