As you can see Glenkinchie belongs to a fabulous family and the Whisky Boys have at one time or another tasted all of them and have written on this website about most of them.

This Friday Jim and Nicola are intending to visit the Distillery and will write an article soon after and let you all know how much we enjoyed ourselves.

So we suggest you visit Glenkinchie’s website and take in all the information and even arrange a distillery tour.
