It is purely coincidence that malt whiskies with similar names, Glens Morangie and Moray are made by the two distilleries of the Macdonald & Muir company. Glen Morangie may be better known but its more southerly sibling is gaining its own reputation. The principal version of Glen Moray has in recent years been subtitled '93, to mark the year of Macdonald & Muir's foundation a century ago, though the whisky in the bottles is a mere 12 years old.
It is a second coincidence that both Glenorangie and Glen Moray were formerly
breweries. Moray was converted into a distillery in 1897, acquired by
Macdonald & Muir in the 1920s and extended in 1958.
