Whisky from Glenburgie reminds you of Ballentine's. Fragrant, grassy and sweet. Herbal and nice for summer evenings.

This distillery was located close to the Glen Spey and Glenallachie distilleries, in Speyside.

Glenburgie started its life as Kilnflat Distillery in 1810. The founder was William Paul. Production didn't start until 1829, and the distillery was closed in 1870. Charles Kay revived it in 1878, renaming it Glenburgie Distillery.

Glenburgie lived through a series of stops, starts, mergings, mothballings and halts. When Hiram Walker bought the distillery in 1935, production restarted. In 1958, two Lomond stills were added to create Glencraig, another single malt.

Allied Lyons bought the distillery in 1987, and in 2005 Chivas Brothers gained control of Glenburgie, under Pernod Ricard. The first official bottling from the distillery was a 15YO, released in 2002. Their Whisky has also been a major component of Old Smuggler and Ballentine's.

There are 3 wash and 3 spirit stills on the premises. In 1958, two “Lomond stills” were installed however they were used for the Glencraig single malt, which was discontinued later on. The distillery uses lightly peated maltings, and the maturation process is Sherry dominated.
