Glen Moray Scotch Whisky Distillery

The Glen Moray Distillery is a working distillery in the Royal Burgh of Elgin. At the beginning likes lots of distilleries it produced beer, but was converted into a malt distillery in 1897 after nearly 70 years.

The Glen Moray distillery is proud to be one of only eight distilleries that are currently on the prestigious Malt Whisky Trail. All the malts producted at this distillery are matured in Bourbon barrels and this produced the rich and spicy characteristics you have learn to know from the Glen Moray malts.

They have a excellent visitor centre where you are given a guided tour of the facilities and how the whisky is produced from the start. These tours are daily and they cover the history of Glen Moray. The tour includes the chance to taste the Glen Moray range, but if you don't have enough time for the tour you can just do a tasting of the range which are all superb. There is also a Fifth Chaper Tours which can be pre-book with the distillery, This will give you a even more in depth tour of Glen Moray distillery and you will learn all about the whisky from over the last five decades by the Distillery Manager, Graham Coull.

Within the distillery there is a shop where you will see the full selection of Glen Moray Single Malt Whisky available and where you can purchase these malts. There is also a range of clothing that you can buy, gifts and food on offer so you can take home a little reminder of your tour. Also there is a coffee shop that serve excellent range of meals.
