DESCRIPTION

The distillery was founded under the name Milton in 1825 by the brothers George and John Rate and was only renamed Glenkinchie in 1837.
In 1853, the Rate brothers went bankrupt and no more whisky was produced until 1881.
In 1914, the distillery became part of Scottish Malt Distillers (SMD).
Between 1917 and 1920 the distillery, like many others, remained closed.
In 1968 the floor maltings were closed and in 1969 they were converted into a whisky museum.
In 1987, the distillery went to United Distillers & Vintners (UDV) and ultimately to Diageo. Today it is one of the last operating distilleries in the Lowlands.

After this single malt has matured for 10 years in used casks to its soft distillery character, it undergoes a further maturation process in specially selected Amontillado sherry casks.
