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.

What a gem of a place this is. We had the tour a few times but being a local we like to escape the hustle and bustle and go to the distillery for coffee and lunch. It's a lovely place to visit and (in our case) and great place to hang out. Value for money too which is a bonus.

We visited Glen Moray on an August afternoon, we were on the last tour of the day at 15:30. The tour cost £5 per person with under 14's free, but I wouldn't recommend this as a tour which would appeal to most children. We had a great time, the Guide (Olivia) was EXTREMELY good, happy to go off script and... More

I'm yet to figure out the logistics of driving to whisky tastings - Glen Moray was walkable and very quick taxi ride back. Small, very friendly distillery was perfect compromise for me to get my Scottish whisky experience and my 8-year-old daughter still enjoy it. We have done personalized bottle at the end of the tour - and it was... More

My first ever visit to a distillery and it was very enjoyable. Very informative guide and loved the tasting at the end. My favourite the 12 yo single malt from Port Wine cask.

Went for the tour. The staff was nice but the tour guide kept talking about how to make the distillery more efficient and profitable. I get that income is important, but it made the entire sales point of whiskey (as a demanding and time consuming beverage to produce) falter.

I really enjoyed my tour of the distillery. The guide was very knowledgable when explaining the different aspects needed, to produce the finished product, to the group and answered any question about the process of producing whisky from grain/ barley to the finished item. The visit to a warehouse was a 'mind boggling eye opener'. Seeing so many barrels made... More
