Description: A warm welcome awaits you at Glen Moray Distillery in Elgin. Glen Moray...
A warm welcome awaits you at Glen Moray Distillery in Elgin. Glen Moray has been distilled on the banks of the River Lossie since 1897 by a small dedicated team of craftsmen. In over a century of distilling at Glen Moray, much has changed. However, the ingredients, processes and the skills of those responsible for producing this finest quality single malt whisky remain constant. A small, friendly and informal distillery, Glen Moray is situated in the city of Elgin, the historic capital of Speyside. The area around Elgin is known as the Laich of Moray and has a mild climate. Indeed, an old Moray saying proclaims that the Laich of Moray has forty days more summer than any other part of Scotland – making Glen Moray one of the sunniest distilleries in Speyside. The Visitor Centre runs tours of the distillery, tastings of the whiskies available and has a small coffee shop and gift shop.

Tour and coffee.

The tour of the distillery is excellent followed by coffee in a lovely coffee shop. The coffee shop retains the distillery theme quite cleverly.

They give a really great and informative tour. I also really appreciate that they let you take photos on the tour as well. The tasting at the end was very nice. You get a sample of the unaged spirit, your pick of their classic, 12 or 16 year old, and they pour a dram of their prayed classic as well.... More

We did not do the tour here, so I can not comment on that aspect, but for 5 pounds, you get to taste 5 of their scotches in pours of 1 shot! Basically, 5 pounds for 5 shots - make sure you are not the one driving :)! The girl who poured did a great job explaining the differences in... More

The distillery is about 30 minutes walk from Elgin railway station, and is easy to find using the technology that the majority have on their electronic device. We had a short wait for the next tour with only one other couple, so didn't have to put up with walking around in a crowd. Though we had been on similar tours... More

Been to Glen Moray for light lunch or snacks quite often and I have never been disappointed. The little restaurant is incorporated into the shop and distillery tour reception. The staff were great and the range of Panini, breads, tatties, etc with fillings and soup is just right.

They do offer tours but you can just go into the shop and pay for a tasting. They also have a small cafe on site. I decided to do the excellence tasting, five dram for £10 and it was fantastic value for money. Totally changed my opinion of Glen Moray. - Glen Moray Lightly Peated, only launched in 2015 and...

Visited with my girlfriend and our five year old son. Unfortunately I didn't have time to do a tour, but looking at the group that had just finished it looked pretty good. Lunch was really good and the staff were very good. The fill your own is very good value compared to other distilleries and the shop has a good... More

Lovely setting and a really nice place to have a light meal. The tour was great and very relaxed with a really good tasting afterwards. You also have the option to bottle and label your own bottle from a single barrel which is something quite special.
