Glenkinchie Distillery

Johnnie Walker’s home in the Lowlands, Glenkinchie sinks into the tranquil valleys of the Glen of Kinchie, overlooked by grassy cliffside and surrounded by lush woodland. It’s this inspiring natural vista that keeps their distinctive malts so unique and the waters of the nearby River Tyne that provide the key ingredient for their whiskies.

Since its opening in 1837, the distillery has transformed into a space not just for whisky production, but education too. Their Victorian red-brick warehouses are now home to a malt whisky museum, a charming garden that supports local honeybees and the iconic statue of the striding man and Bruce the Dog – the familiar face of Johnnie Walker.

A visit to East Lothian is incomplete without a behind the scenes tour, a flavour and cask experience through their newly transformed Victorian warehouse.
