Glenkinchie Distillery History.
Glenkinchie is one of the last working lowland distilleries left in Scotland.
Just 15 miles east of Edinburgh on the edge of the Lammermuir hills, a region known as the “Garden Of Scotland”.
The brothers George and John Rate founded the distillery between 1825 and 1833, although originally named Milton Distillery.
Eventually the distillery renamed Glenkinchie in 1837.
In 1853 the Rate brothers went bankrupt and consequently the empty buildings of the distillery became used as a sawmill and cowshed.
