Description:

First registered as a distillery in 1843 but the site had been used for brewing since 1738. Rebuilt in 1883. Closed 1931 to 1936 and again in 1941 to 1944. Number of stills increased from 2 to 4 in 1980 and again to 8 in 1993. The biggest selling single malt in Scotland. Apprentices in the distilling trade used to start their career in the warmth of the malting house. This tiring work and atmosphere would make them fall asleep. To avoid this, on their first day at work the distillery manage would take then aside and tell them about the ghost of the White Lady who haunted the distillery and who's sight had driven men mad. The distillery no longer has its own maltings and the apprentices start work in the cooperage no doubt where they are told the same story. The advertising men tell us 'morangie' means tranquillity infact it is from Gaelic meaning river side meadow or resting place for cattle.
