| Directly behind Glenlossie Distillery lies Mannochmore - build in 1971 it stands as a seperate distillery sharing land on the site. From the road it is hard to see Mannochmore distillery as it lies in the heart of the site and does not have any indication on the building that it is Mannochmore.|
Mannochmore is similar in design to the other UDV distilleries rebuilt in the late 1960s, early 1970s. Comparisons can be specifically drawn to several distilleries. Clynelish distillery was built in 1819 and stood on its own until 1967 when a new modern distillery was built next door to it. The new distillery claimed the Clynelish name and the original distillery was renamed Brora. Both distilleries operated until 1983 when Brora was mothballed. Several miles down the A9 at Alness lies Teanninich Distillery, again there are both old and new distillery buildings. However at Teanninich it is only the new distillery which produces whisky. Closer to home Linkwood distillery founded in 1821, went through a number of rebuild periods with the latest in the 1970's. Today it produces from both the new and old distillery buildings.
Many speculated that Mannochmore would similarily take over the production from Glenlossie. But this was not to be and both are still producing today.
There are two areas of the site that both distilleries share; the cask warehouse and the dark grains plant - which also serve other distilleries in the area. This plant processes the by-products from distilleries to make cattle feed.
The dark grains plant is at the far side of the site and is visible from one of the small roads which cuts across the countryside.
