About the distillery

Distillery

Glen Garioch

Glen Garioch is a Scotch whisky distillery located in the town of Oldmeldrum in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. It was founded in 1797 and is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. The distillery produces a range of single malt whiskies, including their signature Glen Garioch 12 Year Old, which is a smooth and complex whisky with notes of honey, vanilla, and spice. Glen Garioch is one of the few distilleries in Scotland to still use traditional floor maltings, where the barley is soaked in water and then spread out on the floor to germinate. The malt is then dried using peat smoke, which gives Glen Garioch whiskies a distinctive smoky flavour profile. One interesting fact about Glen Garioch is that it was closed for a period of time in the 1990s due to a decline in demand for Scotch whisky. However, the distillery was reopened in 1997 and has since become known for producing high-quality single malt whiskies.
