Here you can see a working distillery, the making of a Capital Malt in every respect. An exhibition of malt whisky is housed in the listed red brick building which was formerly the floor Maltings. At the bar a taste of the Glenkinchie Single Malt which has a long, warm finish, with a floral and fruity spiciness.
