Collection Glen Elgin Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glen Elgin Distillery nestles quietly in the heart of Speyside. Located about three miles south of Elgin on the Rothes road, it was the last distillery to be built in the boom years of the 1890s.

The original site was chosen for its water source and proximity to the railway line. Unfortunately, the water source proved unreliable and permission to build a railway siding was refused. The distillery passed through several owners before becoming part of DCL in the 1930s. After that it was sold to White Horse Distillers Ltd. licensed.

Until the 1950s, the distillery was fueled and lit entirely with petroleum. All machines were powered by a petroleum engine and a water turbine. It was a full-time job keeping the kerosene lamps burning. Today, the distillery still proudly wears the White Horse emblem and is part of UDV's "Elgin Group" along with Linkwood, Glenlossie and Mannochmore. The whiskey is still a key ingredient in White Horse Blended Whisky, which is exported to over 200 countries worldwide.

Although the distillery has undergone extensive refurbishment, it has retained the look and feel of a small, traditional distillery. There are no state-of-the-art computer boards and the prized whiskey is still handcrafted.
