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.

Great spot for a coffee

As well as being very interesting as a whisky destination, it has also a lovely coffee shop serving lunches and coffees. Great parking too which is also a bonus.

My 3rd fav distillery on my list. Tour wasn't too bad and whisky wasn't bad either. You don't get to see them fill barrels here which is disappointing.

Emma was a fantastic guide. Her delivery was down to earth, subtly humorous, entertaining and of course, informative. We had been to one other tour the week before at another distillery that we also enjoyed. It was nice to be able to compare the information offered between the two. The Glen Moray tour was quite casual and refreshingly succinct while... More

The distillery is located close to the city, the tours are well organized and can be pre-booked on-line - do it to plan your day freely!!! . Interesting introduction on whisky production with whisky tasting at the end of tour.

This was one of the best distillery tours we have had and well-worth the sum of 5 pounds! Our amily group was made up of six, four adults (two about 80 years old) and two children (15 and 11) and all of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide was very informative and obviously really enjoyed what he was doing. The... More
