A superb exemplar of a Lowland Scotch.

Glenkinchie Distillery is set on a farmland, 15 km from Edinburgh. It was established in 1825 by brothers George and John Rate. Originally named Milton Distillery, the brothers renamed it around 1837.

In 1969 Glenkinchie stopped malting its own grain and malting floors were transformed into a museum of Malt Whisky. Two decades later, in 1989, the brand was revived by United Distillers, when they started marketing it under their classic Malt brands. Today it is one of the few remaining distilleries in the Lowland region.

Glenkinchie 12 Year Old replaces the 10 year old as the new entry level bottling from this Lowland Distillery. It was named Best Lowland Single Malt of 2014 at the World Whiskies Awards.
