The Distillery

Our distillery is a place with many stories to tell.

A place of pride and dedication. Above all, a place of whisky.

The Heart of Speyside

Our 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.

A Place of Pride and Dedication

Our site is split in two by the Burn of Rothes. On one side, we have production. 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.
