Glen Grant Distiller deserves to be visited not just to see its original nineteenth century buildings but also the exquisite Victorian garden. The distillery was started in 1840 and is one of the first licensed distilleries in the Scottish Highlands. Located in the Speyside region which is home to many famous Highland distilleries, Glen Grant has the perfect setting for a whisky distillery.
The Longmorn Distillery is built on the road from Elgin to Rothes and is located next to Benriach Distillery. Longmorn gets its name from ‘Lhanmorgund’, which means ‘place of the holy man’. There is a small church nearby, about three miles outside Elgin, built in honor of an early Christian saint, St. Marnan or Marnoch. The church was known as Lann Marnoch, which got modified to Longmorn.
