Glen Elgin WhiskyGlen Elgin Whisky Distillery was built in 1897 and lies three miles south of Elgin on the road to Rothes. The original Glen Elgin Whisky Distillery site was chosen for its water source and close proximity to the railway line, but unfortunately the water source proved to be inconsistent. The Glen Elgin Whisky Distillery persevered with several owners before becoming part of Distillers Company Ltd in the 1930's. Until the 1950's, the distillery was entirely operated and lit by paraffin with all machinery being driven by a paraffin engine and a turbine.
