MO ÒR Whisky
sleeping in oaken casks,
and growing in value year by year.
Many miles I travelled, innumerable
samples I have tasted from casks
of the 91 distilleries still in existence
and the 35 that have closed their doors.
For the first time in the history
of single malt whisky,
there will be a collection that represents
all of Scotland’s treasures: MO ÒR.
The gold is yours. Enjoy it in health!

The MO ÒR Collection
Scotland is the home of whisky and is known for perfecting the art of distilling for many centuries. The traditional ingredients are malted barley, yeast, and water from a nearby source. In this day and age, the whisky market is dominated by marketing and promotion of the big names in the industry. However, in every corner of Scotland there are distilleries who put their passion and knowledge into the spirit and create a unique, distinctive whisky for you to enjoy. We have selected the best casks from distilleries all over Scotland, ranging from the light and fragrant aromas of the Lowlands to the complex whiskies from the rugged Highlands, from the typical peaty coastal Islay whiskies to the fruity elegant flavours of the Speyside. Some distillery names might sound familiar and some you might have never heard of. All of the selected whiskies are of the highest quality and tell their own unique story after years of maturing in oaken casks. Only these whiskies find their way into the MO ÒR Collection.
MO ÒR means “My Gold” in Gaelic and for more than one reason. The whiskies which feature in the collection are all bottlings from a single cask, always un-chillfiltered with its natural colour preserved and every bottle is individually numbered. The goal behind the MO ÒR collection is to strive to include a cask of every distillery found in Scotland. Never before has a unique and diverse collection of whiskies been created and it therefore gives an unrivalled view of what Scotch Single Malt Whisky has to offer.
All the whiskies in the MO ÒR Collection are from individual casks and are therefore unique and incomparable. Collecting these bottles or miniatures will result in an extraordinary selection of the best whiskies of Scotland. Every Scotch Single Malt Whisky within the MO OR Collection has its own characteristics, which are printed on each label and luxury box, and is limited to the amount of bottles which were filled from the single cask. A true collectors item indeed! The first release consists of 53 Scotch Single Malt Whiskies, all personally numbered and hand-filled, making it a fine reflection of what Scotland has got to offer.
