Various dates are given for the establishment of Glen Garrioch Distillery but it is likely to have been late on in 1785 making it one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland. This distillery resides in Oldmeldrum in the Highland whisky region and currently operates with two stills. Its traditional floor maltings were in use up until 1993 thus its whisky produced up until that time was slightly smoky. The core distillery range includes the Glen Garioch 12 Year Old with independent bottles offer an interesting selection including Cadenhead’s and the Old Malt Cask.
