Glenrothes

glen·roth·iss

In 1878 wordt de Glenrothes distillery gebouwd op de plek waar eerst een molen annex zagerij stond. In december 1879 wordt de eerste whisky gestookt. De whisky wordt goed gewaardeerd en al in 1896 wordt de productiecapaciteit uitgebreid met een tweede paar stills. In 1922 is er een zeer grote brand in de warehouses waarbij 2/3e deel van de jaarproductie in vlammen opgaat. In 1963 en 1983 wordt opnieuw een paar stills toegevoegd. In 1989 wordt de stillhouse opnieuw opgebouwd en wordt de capaciteit opnieuw uitgebreid, in totaal zijn er nu 10 stills.

Glenrothes distillery ligt aan een klein riviertje, de Rothes burn. Er worden twee waterbronnen gebruikt, Ardcanny en Brauchhill. Glenrothes past een lange fermentatietijd toe van 55 uur. Dit gebeurt in 20 washbacks, waarvan er 12 van hout (oregon pine) zijn gemaakt. De stills zijn erg groot en leveren een mooi profiel op met gedroogd fruit, citrustonen en noten.
