Glen Elgin distillery
La distillerie est située à une quinzaine de kilomètres de l’embouchure de la rivière Lossie soit à une soixantaine de kilomètre à l’est de la ville d’Inverness.
Sur le chemin qui mène à Rothes, un peu à l’écart de la ville d’Elgin, se dresse la distillerie Glen Elgin. Elle voisine avec sa comparse qui fabrique le Longmorn.
La distillerie Glen Elgin fut construite à la fin du whisky-boom, en 1898. Elle a été construite par les financiers William Simpson (ancien directeur de Glenfarclas) et James Carle.
En 1964, la distillerie fut modernisée et équipée de quatre nouveaux alambics.
Comme le Craigellachie et le Lagavulin, le Glen Elgin entre dans la composition du White Horse blend.

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
