Longmorn distillery was built in 1894 by the Longmorn-Glenlivet Distillery Company which was owned by John Duff, Charles Shirres & George Thomas. They were forced to sell the distillery at the end of the 19th century due to the great recession in the whisky industry. John Grant owner of the Glen Grant distillery bought Longmorn through his company Hill Thomson & Company.

In the early 1970's, Longmorn merged with The Glenlivet and Glen Grant distilleries  to create The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd. The distillery doubled the number of stills in 1972 from 4 to 6 and then increased the number to 8 stills in 1974. Seagram purchased the distillery in 1977. Longmorn is one of the few distilleries who never stopped production. The distilleries belonging to the Chivas and Glenlivet Group became part of Seagram which was bought by the French group Pernod-Ricard in December 2001.

Longmorn single malt whisky is very highly rated by whisky connoisseurs. Part of the Longmorn production is used in the Something Special and Queen Anne blends.
