The history of Royal Dornoch & Glenmorangie Glenmorangie, Scotland’s favourite Single Malt Whisky, famed for the tallest stills in Scotland and pioneers within the whisky industry, is enjoyed by whisky aficionados around the world. Carefully crafted by the famous Men of Tain to a level described as ‘unnecessarily well made’ Glenmorangie takes great pride in the lengths to which it goes to create some of the world’s most sought-after single malt Scotch whiskies.

Glenmorangie is proud to be the ‘Spirit of The Open Championship’, and it seems fitting that the nearby distillery in the Royal Burgh of Tain and the world renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club should have close ties.



The legendary course designer and pioneer of professional golf, Old Tom Morris, who created some of the great golf courses on which The Open is played, remodelled and extended the original 9-hole Royal Dornoch golf course in 1886: one of the new holes, the 13th, was named ‘Morangie’ because of the view of the Morangie Farm and distillery across the beautiful Dornoch Firth.

Sharing this great history, Glenmorangie is delighted to be the ‘Official Whisky of Royal Dornoch’. In celebration, anyone scoring an eagle on the par-5 9th Hole on the Championship course will be able to take home a bottle of our flagship expression, the Glenmorangie Original 10 Years Old, in acknowledgement of their success at the turn and to inspire them as they move on to the 10th hole. In 2013, it was agreed to rename the par-4 18th Hole on the Championship course ‘Glenmorangie’ and anyone scoring an eagle at the 18 th will receive a bottle of Glenmorangie Extremely Rare 18 Years Old, a single malt of serious distinction, to celebrate a rare and spectacular conclusion to a memorable round on one of the world’s finest golf courses.
