Logo.jpg Edinburgh: Glenkinchie Distillery



Nestled among rolling grain fields at the foot of the Pentland Hills, the brick funnel of Glenkinchie Distillery stands proud above a cluster of warehouses and outbuildings. The central factory is a vast, cavernous space dominated by the enormous steel distilling vats producing one of the three remaining Lowland malt whiskeys. 19th century architecture conceals a hypermodern, sterile laboratory devoted to the prized “waters of life.” Conveyor belts deliver hops and barley delivered on site by truck into sorting and preparation areas. Thick pipes weaving around catwalks regulate oxygen and heat into the great mixers on a scale that dwarfs the employees working around them. Mechanized and digitized processes feed information into digital terminals that control temperature and growth.

The second floor closer resembles distilleries of old. Raw beam ceilings and bare, swept plank floors replace polished chrome and steel. Enormous barrels poke up a few feet through ground level, their bodies mostly contained in the lower floors below. Tour guides delight in opening heavy covers to unleash the earthy, pungent smell of fermenting barley, hops, and water. Glenkinchie’s tasting rooms and shop are its crowning achievements, planked in native Scottish pine buffed to a golden glow rivaling its whiskeys. Bottled spirits occupy places of honour on the shelves, and seating allows an unparalleled view of the hills.
