Venue Description

Glenkinchie proudly serves as one of the Four Corners 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. Following our renovation project, we’re now open to the public. Come explore our Victorian distillery and orchard gardens set within the abundant farmland and sweet-scented wildflowers of East Lothian, a mere 15 miles from Edinburgh. We look forward to welcoming you at Glenkinchie, the Lowland Home of Johnnie Walker.


All of our doors are DDA compliant. All floors are accessible via a lift apart from the Tun Room, which is an older part of the building. We will show any visitors who cannot access the Tun Room a video of the room and fermentation on an iPad so you do not miss anything. Please let us know if any specific requirements at time of booking so we can endeavour to deliver a positive visitor experience.
