Glenkinchie Distillery is one of the three remaining Lowland Malt Whisky distilleries. It owes its name to its location: a glen by the Kinchie burn near Pencaitland in East Lothian. Just 15 miles away from Edinburgh it nestles between the verdant Lammermuir hills and the small coastal resorts along the Firth of Forth where it meets the sea.
