Glenkinchie Distillery

Glenkinchie Distillery

Great tour, worth the trip

Your visit begins with a unique exhibition on the original malting floors, home to the renowned model distillery. You will then be met with your guide and led through the distillery production area, learning how they make their ‘water of life’.

To finish your tour you are welcomed into the bar for a dram or two of the finished product. Glenkinchie Distillery is the nearest malt whisky distillery to Edinburgh. Most of the production areas are accessible by wheelchair, but the Mash Tuns can only be reached by a staircase.

Take the direct luxury shuttle service from Edinburgh City Centre which operates twice a day, 7 days a week with pick-ups at 10am and 1.30pm. Book your seats for £14 per person on 01875 342 012 (attraction entry included with your City Pass).
