Glenkinchie proudly serves as one of the Four Corners of Scotland distilleries of Johnnie Walker. We distil the Edinburgh Malt that is enjoyed around the world on its own and as a vital component of Johnnie Walker whiskies.

Discover the generous spirit of our garden home where we create our rare Lowland style whisky, evoking fragrant flowers, dried cut grass, and nutty cereal. You can also visit our bar for cocktails, drams, coffees and sharing platters. We look forward to welcoming you at Glenkinchie, the Lowland Home of Johnnie Walker.

Please note that the distillery is in its 'silent season' until 20th March 2023. Due to this we have adapted our tours and experiences while the production areas are not accessible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. If you have any questions, please get in touch with a member of the team.
