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.

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

Went for lunch but there were no tables available, so opted to go to the outside dining area. Despite being a little cool, we were well-wrapped. No menus on the tables and a sign said to order and pay inside - so back in we went and took the only table available - a tiny coffee table with a couple... More

When in Scotland you need to do a distillery tour. I don't drink Scotch, but it is a must. This was a delightful tour of a small distillery, and the tour guide was most informative. They have several exhibits prepared to assist you in understanding the process of aging the whisky. And there was two small samples at the end.... More

Took husband for lunch on Thursdays. It is a small intimate setting. Can get tour of distillery and try sampling and buying some whisky but we were there to eat. I had cauliflower and broccoli soup which was very nice. Husband had tuna sandwich. Bread really thick as was filling so you could see what you were getting. A proper... More

The shop has a good variety of merchandise. It also has the option of trying a few drams without having to do a tour. Next to this a coffeeshop is present (which serves excellent sandwiches / cakes / etc.). It's a popular visit, so expect some tour buses.

Situated at Elgin, it is very accessible by car. The tour is the most reasonably priced in the area, which includes a tasting of 3 malts. The tour includes a visit to their warehouse, which is the epitome of any distillery tour. It smells amazing there. You can also open several of their casks and sniff the wonderful aroma of... More

Glen Moray Distillery was a fantastic place to visit. My partner and I were a little late to the tour we booked, so were happy to find that we could have a wee bite to eat in their quaint little cafe, whilst we waited for the next one. The guide knew his stuff and made the experience interesting and entertaining.... More

Did the tour last week with a lovely young Latvian lady. Her knowledge was fantastic - she was able to answer lots of questions and dealt with multiple nationalities. The tasting at the end was good - loved the 10yo Chardonnay cask!

This distillery started life as a brewery before moving into whisky production in the late 1800's. On approach as a visitor, it doesn't look much but the shop has lots to offer at very reasonable prices. There is also a cafe that serves generous portions of sandwiches or soup, with a good selection of cakes etc. The tour itself is... More
