Tomatin 1967 Celtic Heartlands 40 Year Old

Celtic Heartlands was a range of bottlings from former Bruichladdich master distiller, Jim McEwan, produced by Murray McDavid.

Murray McDavid were founded in 1996 by Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin and ex-Springbank distillery Director, Gordon Wright. The company bought re-opened Bruichladdich distillery in December 2000, hiring Jim McEwan as Master Distiller. The company was purchased by Remy Cointreau in 2012, with the Murray McDavid brand eventually returning to Scottish hands the following year. Murray McDavid is famed for coining the term "ACE-ing" (additional cask enhancement) in relation to their cask finishing process, something they continue to use to great effect to this day.

A 1967 vintage Tomatin, this was aged for 40 years and bottled in 2008.

Tomatin was once the largest distillery in Scotland, with an expansion in 1976 bringing its still count to a whopping 23 (with a capacity for 10 million litres). An over-stretch at the time, it was forced into liquidation in 1985, never having run at full capacity. The following year it became Scotland's first ever Japanese-owned distillery after it was saved by a consortium of long-term customers. Nowadays it provides the heart to the popular Antiquary blend in addition to continuing to produce a highly regarded single malt.
