The Glenkinchie Distillery is a classic lowland distillery in Scotland, one of six distilleries in the Lowland region. Originally founded in 1837, the distillery today produces the well-known Edinburgh Malt, a light, fruity, dry whisky. The distillery closed in 1853 and was converted to a sawmill until 1890, when it was re opened by a group of brewers, blenders and wine merchants from Edinburgh and Leith. It stopped malting its own grain in 1969 and turned the malting floors into a museum of whisky featuring a miniature replica of the distillery. It now hosts more than 25,000 visitors each year, including many who stop at the distillery as part of a tour from Edinburgh, taking in the Roslyn Chapel and the Melrose Abbey as well.

Visitors to the distillery will tour the old malting room, the mashing, fermentation and distillation rooms, the distillery cellar and, finally, the bar. At the end of the tour, visitors are able to taste the Glenkinchie single malt whisky and receive a coupon for three pounds off a bottle of whisky.
