The Glenrothes is an award winning Speyside Single Malt Whisky of exceptional quality. A combination of many factors including an unusually slow distillation process in tall copper pot stills deliver our characteristic sweet, fruity and elegant spirit. It lies on a tributary of the river Spey in Scotland; Speyside is universally acknowledged as the heartland of single malt whisky distillation. The small Speyside town of Rothes is rather coy about what it does best. The only clue, if you drive down the narrow High Street with the window open, is the faint, sweet scent of distillation in the air.
Rothes has been making malt whisky since 1840 and though most is used in blends, it could, if it wished, produce enough to fill 50 million bottles of single malt each year. At dusk you get a better idea of scale when great clouds of steam can be seen billowing up from the town’s five distilleries of Speyburn, Glan Grant, Glen Spey, Caperdonich and, of course, Glenrothes.
