Glenmorangie 18 year old is a Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky made in Tain, Ross-shire. Glenmorangie can trace its origins back to 1843 (although it is claimed that alcoholic drinks of some sort have been made in the area since the middle ages). There was a brewery on the site in the 1700s that used to brew using water from the famous Tarlogie springs that Glenmorangie use today. However the site did not become a distillery until it was purchased by William Matheson in 1843 who installed some old gin stills. Today the distillery is owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (who also owní_Ardbegí_in Islay).
