The producer said sales had been boosted by “a new wave” of whisky drinkers, with the UK proving one of the biggest markets for the brand, as well as the US and Germany where the company reported its strongest sales.

“Following a couple years of decline, the whisky market is back on its feet and Tomatin is steadily seducing the new wave of whisky drinkers – not just on Scottish soil, but globally,” said Stephen Bremner, who recently took up the position following more than a decade as sales director.

Additionally, the company releveled that the turnover for the distillery’s visitor centre has surpassed the £1 million mark for the first time since opening. Having grown in line with the brand, the visitor centre had become an important revenue stream for the business, said Bremner.

Sat on the Speyside border, Tomatin is one of the largest distillers in the Highlands. In addition to its portfolio of core Tomatin products – spanning four decades, the distillery also producers Cù Bòcan, a lightly peated whisky, and range a range of blended whiskies.
