Glenkinchie 12yr old
Glenkinchie is one of the few extant Lowland distilleries in Scotland. They have one of the largest wash stills in the country – so large that when it was replaced in 2008 they had to remove the roof of the still house to complete the operation.
The undisputed champion of the light Lowland style.
