Glengoyne Distillery, Dumgoyne, Scotland.

This evening, I am posting information on Glengoyne Distillery which is located in the Trossachs region, about fifteen miles North of Glasgow, West of Scotland.

Although Glengoyne is one of Scotland’s smaller whisky distilleries, with a capacity of 1.1m litres p.a. it attracts about 60, 000 visitors p.a.
