Friday: Vorspiel with the Hofbrauhaus Show

The Hofbrauhaus Show, which until recently was a permanent band of the world's most famous tavern in Munich, made the trip to Oktoberfest Stryn for the first time last year. This year they will return, and before the concert in "Bierstube" in Stryn Friday night they warm up with a mini concert at Mt. Hoven at 7pm.

They refer to themselves as a Bavarian treat - "Gemutlichkeit" in the proper sense of the word. From the scene, musical delicacies flow out, according to the true Bavarian recipe, garnished with good humor and served in a lively way. The treats ranges from international hits to typical Oktoberfest style. Today, the band travels around the world to entertain and bring the right Oktoberfest feel to the people.

Saturday: Vorspiel with Tresfjord Janitsjar

Tresfjord Janitsjar provides good atmosphere and pure “ompa” music Saturday from 3.30pm, and will play in two sections until about 6 pm.

Mortlach History

Mortlach was the name of the original village which sprang up around the abbey of the name, founded by Saint Moluag in the 7th century. With the building of Dufftown in 1817 the old name fell in abeyance – apart from the distillery.

The distillery was the first to be licensed within Dufftown, being founded by James Findlater, Donald Mackintosh and Alex Gordon in 1823. It passed briefly into the hands of the Grant-brothers of Glen Grant fame who gutted the buildings and used the equipment for their distillery in Rothes.

It was George Cowie and his son Alexander who, from the 1850s on, recommenced whisky production and steered Mortlach to a pre-eminent position as a blending malt.

Although no-one is sure where the unique distillation regime originated, its adherence to richness and weight singles Mortlach out as one of the distilleries with a robust belief in the older ways of making whisky.

It remained in the Cowie’s hands until 1923 when it became part of John Walker & Sons and from there via DCL into Diageo.

In 2014, it was announced that a mirror image of the existing distillery would be built which, when completed, will double total capacity (source: Scotch Whisky).
