Collection Linkwood - Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Linkwood Distillery is a whiskey distillery in Elgin, Speyside, Scotland. It is owned by British beverage giant Diageo. The distillery was built in 1821 by Peter Brown with two stills and started production in 1825 with a capacity of 4,500 liters per year.

After a temporary closure between 1941 and 1945 due to barley shortages during World War II, the distillery reopened in 1945 under Roderick Mackenzie, who ran it until 1963. Mackenzie believed that everything that happens in the distillery contributes to the end product. In 1962, Scottish Malt Distillers decided that the distillery needed a complete overhaul.

In 1971 a second still, known as Linkwood B, was built alongside the first still and featured steam heated stills. The stills of the first distillery were also converted to steam heating. With the construction of Linkwood B, the two distilleries reached their current combined capacity of 2.5 million liters per year.
