Glenkinchie is a light, delicate whisky; Sweet and creamy with a subtle floral fragrance.
This subtly sophisticated Lowland single malt is a superb pre-dinner drink.
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”.
This is rolling farm country, perfect for growing barley and described by Robert Burns as "the most glorious corn country I have ever seen".
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. It’s light character is borne from its distillation in some of Scotland’s largest stills; matured for 12 years, the result is a light, floral whisky with a fresh, creamy taste.
“Sweet and creamy with a lightly aromatic edge.” Dave Broom, whisky writer and expert.
