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 12 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a flagship offering from the distillery, and is a part of the Diageo’s Classic Malts range. It is a great introduction to the Lowlands region of Scotland, displaying the characteristic lightness and grassy elements that Lowland whiskies are known for. A great malt to enjoy ass an aperitif.
