Glenkinchie is situated only 15 miles from Edinburgh and is known by many as the ‘Edinburgh Malt’. As the name suggests, Glenkinchie can be found on the glen of the Kinchie Burn, near the village of Pencaitland. The distillery recently underwent a significant refurbishment and now boasts an impressive visitor experience that’s worth the trip if you’re in Edinburgh.
Glenkinchie Distillers Edition is matured for around ten years in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in Amontillado sherry butts for two years. The distillery’s typically light and grassy style is thus layered with dried orchard fruits and extra vanilla oakiness.
