Since being purchased by La Martiniquaise, Glen Moray has benefited from an ambitious expansion. As a host of new releases, it re-established itself as a big name in Speyside whisky. It also became a significant competitor to premium brands such as Glenmorangie. In 2018, the distillery produced five times as much spirit as it did in 1897. Despite this enormous output, all 85,000 casks continue to be traditionally matured on-site.

He released1999 Glen Moray expressions aged in Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay barrels.
