Kinclaith
Distillery
Founded in 1957
Kinclaith Distillery was built in Glasgow, in the Lowlands, within the Strathclyde Grain distillery complex.

Long John International Limited, owners of the Strathspey complex, founded the distillery in 1957. Whitbread bought the facility in 1975, and later the distillery was closed.

The Loch Katrine was the main source of water. They had one wash and one spirit still, of the Speyside variety, and the unpeated maltings were industrial.

What does Kinclaith taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Kinclaith Scotch. It's based on all Kinclaith drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Kinclaith before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

About
Lowlands
Perching just above England, the Lowlands can play truant from peat or salinity. 

Triple distilled malts are characteristic of the region, offering a gentle, elegant palate reminiscent of grass, honeysuckle, cream, ginger, toffee, toast and cinnamon.

The Lowlands are master of the Whisky blend and are also known for their silent stills, which sadly no longer produce.
