GLEN ELGIN

Distillery
  • Region: Speyside
  • Address: Longmorn, Moray
  • Founded: 1898
Product Description

The Glen Elgin distillery creates a single malt with a beautiful fruity and floral style.

Casks of Glen Elgin are an absolute pleasure to nose and taste.

The piper is a great character to represent Glen Elgin; it matches the varied notes of Glen Elgin – be those light and floral or deep, and at times herbal.

Glen Elgin excels in American oak, where the soft vanilla and hints of spice enhance the distillery character.

Expect a sweet beginning and a long and rewarding finish from this exceptional Speyside distillery.

Did You Know?

The buildings of the Glen Elgin distillery are rather modest, this being due to a lack of funding when it was first built in 1898.  In 1901, the distillery was acquired at auction by the Glen Elgin-Glenlivet Distillery Company for £4,000. Production began once more, though it only lasted from 1904 to 1905. It was not until Scottish Malt Distillers acquired Glen Elgin in 1930 that its fate improved.

One of the most visited distilleries , helped by its located just off the A9 with travellers going north from Edinburgh

Distillery Tasting Notes

Nose

Toasted brioche and vanilla sponge cake promise a sweet and moreish single malt. Freshly cut and grass-toasted oak offer more subtle complexities.

Palate

Buttery and oily popcorn with sweet brown sugar and almond. With water added, fresh green notes of pear and cardamom rise to the fore and then make way to a waxy and prickly peppery note of anise.

Finish

Elegant and refined. Crisp apple and then into sweet malt and salted caramel popcorn. Faint spiciness develops and drifts off to provide a medium-long finish.
