Malt of the Month: Glenkinchie’s 10-Year-Old

Posted: November 25th, 2019 | Posted in: General News

For December, we’ve chosen an extra special whisky to highlight – Glenkinchie’s 10-Year-Old malt!

Glenkinchie produces whiskies in their distillery in East Lothian, one of only six distilleries in the Lowland area of Scotland. Despite being close to the border, Glenkinchie’s malts have the distinctive taste you’d expect from Scotch, with strong honey, spicy and warm notes.

Founded in 1837 by brothers John and George Rate, Glenkinchie Distillery has had a colourful past of closures, rebrands and owner changes. In 1914, Glenkinchie was one five distilleries that formed the famous Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd, and over 100 years later the distillery produces 1.3 million litres of whisky annually.

The distillery uses American ex-​Bourbon and Amontillado Sherry casks to mature their whisky, a firm favourite amongst Scottish distilleries.

The 10-year-old single malt we love so much is perfect for any whisky lover, but especially for someone who wants to try an authentic Scotch malt on their travels. It’s a real treat – sweet yet spicy with honey, fruity and grassy flavours being the strongest.

Whether it’s your first whisky dram or you’re a connoisseur, try Glenkinchie’s 10 year old single malt at Mackays Bar!
