Glen Elgin 12yo is a top-quality malt, highly sought-after for blends. This is a little-seen single malt expression that represents great value for money.
Glen Elgin was built and designed by the notable distillery architect Charles Doig. The distillery was founded at the end of the whisky-boom in 1898 when Leith whisky blender, Pattisons, famously drove a buoyant market for malt whisky into recession. (Local legend has it that many of the workers went unpaid and that the steeplejacks only got their money when they threatened to demolish the chimney-stack). Despite the crisis, the owners William Simpson (former manager of Glenfarclas) and James Carle decided to continue their activities on a smaller scale. Unfortunately, they were forced to end the production and to sell their distillery as soon as November 1900, just six months after their first distillation.
