Subsidiary of Angus Dundee Distillers which operates Glencadam distillery at Brechin.
The Ballantruan Whisky Company Profile
The Ballantruan Whisky Company shares its name with the Ballantruan Spring, the water source used by Tomintoul distillery that serves as Ballantruan’s base of operations.
Its flagship single malt is the Old Ballantruan, one of just a few peated Speyside whiskies being produced.
The Ballantruan Whisky Company History
The Ballantruan Whisky Company was founded in 2005 by the Hillman family, owners of Angus Dundee Distillers. The family had purchased Tomintoul distillery from blending house Whyte & Mackay five years earlier, and were keen to release a peated version of Tomintoul under a separate brand name.
The Old Ballantruan was released that same year as a no-age-statement peated malt and remained the company’s signature expression, although a 10-year-old was later introduced in 2012.
The Ballantruan Whisky Company currently exists as a dormant entity.
