Glenkinchie Single Malt Scotch 10 Year

Glenkinchie is a Lalland (Lowland Dialect) corruption of 'de Quincy', a family which owned tracts of East Lothian - the 'Garden of Scotland' - in the 14th century. In 1853 the Rate brothers were bankrupted and the buildings of the distillery lay empty, being primarily used as a cowshed. In the 1880s Glenkinchie was bought by a consortium of whisky merchants and blenders from Edinburgh and Leith, which re-established production after rebuilding the distillery and maltings. The Distillery Today In 1914 Scottish Malt Distillers was formed with a view to consolidating the interests and resources of Lowland distilleries in troubled times. Glenkinchie was bought and has remained under the license of John Haig & Co. Color: deep gold, like Autumn fields of Lothian barley; Nose: soft and delicate aroma, with grassy and slightly sweet, fruity notes; Body: light; Palate: smooth and malty; Finish: dry and clean, with a soft and mellow afterglow.

'Lowland malts are generally accessible...Glenkinchie being dry and complex.' Andrew Barr, Sunday Times, 14 January 1996.
