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.

We had a very good insight in a very friendly atmosphere. We where lucky enough to be part of a small group. The guide was very knowledgeable and could answer most of the questions. If he didn't know the answer, he would ask one of the worker in the factory. We did have a taste at nearly every step of... More

We tried both of the tastings. The essential and the select tasting. I recommend the select as you get to taste very rare whiskies. I really enjoyed the visit and the service.

Had a tour with Emma and was amazed by her knowledge and passion. Although she is young in age, her passion and knowledge supersedes most others. It was was a great tour of the facility, but the tasting room and cafe felt more warming and welcoming than the other locations we visited. I was not that familiar with Glen Moray... More

Whilst the food in the restaurant was quite nice the service was terrible. We had to wait ages for 2 glasses of tap water to go with our meal. In the end I went to the service area and got it for myself. Our desert was not the one I ordered and when I mentioned this, one of the other... More

It really is worth taking the tour if you have time, or can make it. The Cafe is also very well worth a visit on its own without the tour. It is located besides the tasting area and small shop, so it is possible to gain benefit from this alone. The Cafe does an attractive range of eats and drinks.... More
