Founded at the end of the whisky boom in 1898, it was built and designed by the notable distillery architect Charles Doig of Elgin.

Today, as the summer house-martins swoop among the worm tubs at the distillery on the edge of the Royal Burgh of Elgin, little seems to have changed in over a hundred years.

As a Speyside malt, its style, of course, is smooth, mellow and sweetly honeyed. Soft spring water comes from the area of Millbuies Loch to the south-east of the distillery. Close your eyes as you nose a glass and you can almost see bees pollinating flowers, then honey- sweet and malty flavours dominate the palate - even a dash of tangerine fruitiness can be found.

Tangerine fruitiness is the hand-crafted Glen Elgin’s “signature”, born of long and precise fermentation. An easily accessible single malt with Speyside fruit and sweetness.

Tasting Notes

NOSE - Sweet. Almonds, or maybe marzipan? Some orange juice. Perhaps a trace of sawn wood. With water, Speyside esters, nut oil and buttery fat, prawn crackers, traces of fresh pears; a whiff of smoke or steam; dense.

BODY - Smooth, medium.

PALATE - Pleasant mouthfeel; sweetish, then dryish, with some acidity between; all well balanced.
