One of the few remaining Lowland distilleries, Glenkinchie’s rural location amid fields of barley, just twenty miles from the hustle and bustle of the capital, makes this “The Edinburgh Malt”.
Founded in 1825, the distillery was later purchased and restored by an association of whisky merchants and blenders from Edinburgh in the 1890s. It took ten years but the result was the Victorian distillery that we know today, with its characteristic red-brick buildings, houses for workers and even its own bowling green.
Glenkinchie is a rare survivor from one of the last Lowland distilleries in Scotland, situated twenty miles outside Edinburgh.
It is distilled in some of the largest stills in Scotland to make a light, crisp whisky.
Glenkinchie is perfect as an apéritif Single Malt or at the start of a meal due to its fragrant, light and appetising body and taste.
