Glenkinchie 10 Year Old - old version
Founded in 1837 by local farmers George and John Rate, Glenkinchie nestles amid rolling farmland not twenty miles from bustling Edinburgh. Its clean tasting malt almost single-handedly keeps alive the light Lowland style, for just two Lowland distilleries now remains.
1886 visitor Alfred Barnard was impressed by the sheer size of the stills, even now among the largest in Scotland. The dry, light malt they produce is much enjoyed as an aperitif in nearby Edinburgh, and further afield.
Intricate and soothing, Glenkinchie matures quickly – like the rich Lowland barley all around these parts. Fresh, green flavours with summer fruits and delicate, dry finish perfectly evoke the idyllic setting of the distillery itself
