Glenkhie Lowland Scotch Whisky
The Edinburgh Malt. Glenkinchie Distillery was established in 1837 by John and George Rate. It is situated beside the Kinchie Burn in the heart of East Lothian farmland. Over the gently rolling hills around Glenkinchie, some of the finest barley is grown. Glenkinchie Lowland Malt Whisky has a light delicate nose and a fresh clean aroma: the finish is smooth, with a subtle hint of dryness. A truly fine distinctive Single Malt, excellent as a pre-dinner drink. 10 years old. Distilled at the Glenkinchie Distillery, Pencaitland Scotland. Founded in 1837 by local farmers George and John Rate, Glenkinchie nestles amid rolling farmland not twenty miles from bustling Edinburgh. Its clean tasting malt almost single-handedly keeps alive the light Lowland style, for just two Lowland distilleries now remain. 1886 Visitor Alfred Barnard was impressed by the sheer size of the stills, even now among the largest in Scotland. The dry, light malt they produce is much enjoyed as an aperitif in nearby Edinburgh, and further afield. Intricate and soothing, Glenkinchie matures quickly - like the rich Lowland barley all around these parts. Fresh, green flavours with summer fruits and a delicate, dry finish perfectly evoke the idyllic setting of the distillery itself. Glenkinchie is the gentle Lowland destination on a journey around Scotland's six malt whisky making regions. 43% Alc./Vol. (86 proof). Product of Scotland.
