The Glenrothes Distillery
Not open to the public.
The Glenrothes Distillery is in the town of Rothes, in the heart of Speyside. We don’t have a visitors centre, in fact we don’t even have a road sign. It’s The Glenrothes whisky itself that puts us on the map.
The Glenrothes Distillery in Speyside is split in two by the Burn of Rothes. On one side is the production of our Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Exclusively selected malt arrives on site to be screened and weighed before milling. Then fresh spring water from our Estate is added to the grist to start the mashing process and wash, before being transferred to our tall copper stills.
On the other side of the burn, the new make spirit is transferred to our Filling Store and reduced by our own water source, ready to be filled to cask. That’s beside our warehouses, which slowly mature The Glenrothes whisky to the perfect age. Beyond the warehouses, on the right, hidden away you’ll find the cooperage and cask store.
