Whisky Stills at Glengoyne

Whisky Stills at Glengoyne, Scotland

┬áThis evening, my focus is Glengoyne Distillery which regularly features in both my general tours and specialised whisky tours. This distillery has a history of legal distilling dating back to 1833. Location is in some very pleasant and picturesque countryside near Strathblane, about one hour’s drive from Glasgow. The A81 road which runs in front of the distillery is actually the dividing line between Highland Region and Lowland Region . Unusually, the spirit at Glangoyne is distilled in the Highland Region but matured across the road in the Lowland Region. However, the product remains classified as Highland variety.

Product is a light and non-peated whisky as manifested in the following single malts:

  • 10 year old, 40pct
  • 12 year old, 43pct
  • 17 year old, 43pct
  • 21 year old, 43pct

Here is a tour group being shown around the distillery. Unfortunately, photography is restricted at Glengoyne and hence limited portfolio of images. Read more on Visit Glengoyne Distillery, Visit Scotland…
