Glenkinchie Distillery is a single scotch malt whisky distillery in East Lothian, Scotland. It is one of the six distilleries in the Lowland region. It was founded by the drinks giant Diageo.
A Glenkinchie lies, as the name might advocate, in a glen of the Kinchie Burn near the village of Pencaitland, East Lothian. It is located 15 miles from Edinburgh.
The distillery is located on farmland. The name 'Kinchie' is the dishonesty of 'De Quincy,' the real owners of the land. Its origins date back to around 1825 when it was established by brothers George and John Rate; while there are no exact records, it appears likely that Glenkinchie is the Milton Distillery formerly recorded in the area.
The brothers possibly retitled it in about 1837. In 1853, the Rate Brothers were liquidated, and the location converted to a sawmill.
In 1881, they recreated the plant, and whisky-making resumed under Maj. James Grey. In 1969 distillery halted the malting of its grain, and malting floors were twisted into a museum of malt whisky.
It was comparatively little recognized by the Glenkinchie label until 1989 when United Distillers started marketing it under their Classic Malts product.The aroma of the whiskey has a very light fragrance along with hints of almonds, barley malt, hazelnuts, and manuka honey/beeswax.
If you will talk about the Taste of the whiskey, it is amazingly fruity along with the blended elements of strewed fruits, apple peels, honey, and dessert wine. In addition, it has become slightly oaky late Taste.
The finish of the whiskey is a medium-length, along with the freshly mown grass as well as barley. The whiskey has an amazing record in the industry as it has won the Best Lowland Single Malt – 2016 in the World Whiskies Awards, similarly it has Best Lowland Single Malt – 2014 in World Whiskies
