Open 7 days a week all year round, what better way to get a Taste of Scotland than visit to Glenkinchie Distillery.
Steeped in history, Glenkinchie has been producing whisky since 1837 and is known as the home of ‘The Edinburgh Malt’. Nestled among the rolling farmlands of East Lothian, just 15 miles from Edinburgh, Glenkinchie is one of the few remaining Lowland Distilleries in production and perfectly located for a visit. #
Start your experience in the exhibition which hosts a magnificent scale model distillery. Your guide will then take you through the distillery so you can see how the Water of Life is produced before heading to the bar for your tasting.
There are a range of tours and tasting options available. Have a look on the website to choose yours.
Getting to the distillery has never been easier. There is a shuttle service which runs twice a day, at 10am and 1.30pm from outside Howie’s Restaurant on Waterloo Place in Edinburgh City Centre. Seats are limited so it is strongly advised to call and book on 01875 342 012. The team at Glenkinchie will be delighted to help.
Whether you want to buy a bottle, indulge in a special release or pick up a souvenir, the gift shop is sure to have something for everyone. Look out for special offers in the shop during your visit. To top it off, you will get a £5 discount voucher, redeemable against a 70cl bottle of Whisky, so, what are you waiting for?
