Glenmorangie is said to mean The Glen of Tranquility
In the far north of Scotland, beyond Inverness and half a mile from the Ancient and Royal Burgh of Tain, lies the distillery that creates the whisky nation’s favourite dram – Glenmorangie. A dram that today reaches all four corners of the globe. Think “orange” when you pronounce it – the name rolls on the tongue just like the rich bodied whisky. Think “heaven” when you visit it, for its cluster of barns and outbuildings lie in a tranquil glen overlooking the shores of the Dornoch Firth. In fact, locally, Glenmorangie is known as the “Glen of Tranquility”. The source of the all-important water (in Glenmorangie’s case uniquely hard and mineral rich) is a short walk from the distillery – the Tarlogie Springs. It is inspiring to stand by these springs, and ponder how such great things can come from such humble beginnings. ref: http://www.tain.org.uk/glenmorangie-distillery-...
